US-341 Northern End has been shortened.
« on: September 14, 2009, 02:57:36 AM »

I was just working on double checking some of my US Routes that I created for the Clinched Highway Project for Georgia, and I came across US-341 being shortened.  At first, I noticed a new bypass on the East side of Barnesville, GA with the US-41 shields on it.  So, I naturally checked StreetView to see if it was another "Google messup" on the shields.  However, Google was right in this.  I don't ever recall GDOT requesting this change with the AASHTO.

Anyways, US-341 now ends here: StreetView

US-41 takes over the US-341 routing up to the old end of US-341.  The intown route of US-41 seems to have been turned over to the locals there because I couldn't find any "Business US-41" shields or "Business GA-18" shields.

Wow, I haven't been down to Barnesville in quite sometime. Might have to go and see that change.


Be well,

If anyone goes, it would be great if you could get photos, and send them to me, so I can update usends.com.

Man, it was a good thing I found this before Google started using their own data.  The new bypass has been stripped from the maps. lol.

Thus, I've reported it to them. lol.

This is a real-time video through the City of Barnesville and Lamar County, showing Old U.S. 41, U.S. 41 and where the shortened U.S. 341 begins.

I just got a responce back finally from Google about my report of them "eliminating" the new route from their maps.......

Hi James,

The Google Maps problem you reported has been reviewed. We're currently unable to address issues of this type. We will keep your report and hope to do more to improve our map data in future.

Report history
Problem ID:

Your report: US-41 has been rerouted to this point on a new bypass of Barnesville, GA to intersect US-341 here. Then US-41 takes over all of US-341 North of here to the old intersection of US-41 & US-341 North of town. The old route of US-41 was turned over to the town. This can all be verified via StreetView. Plus, before your data change, it was correct on your maps.
--
Thanks for your help,
The Google Maps team

Google must be on crack if they couldn't even take a five second look @ StreetView in that area because I've used that responce on other ones and they have had no problems....
