Yup. It happens near me, too, and it's the situation I'm discussing.

Uhm. It looks pretty much like any other `highway=unclassified`. The signs say 'Old Route 7' in the style the township uses for rural roads. There are no shields or chaining markers to indicate that it's a state highway. And it's been called, 'Old Route 7' for decades. This isn't a case of the state adding 'OLD' in place of a directional marker, this is just that the town never saw fit to name the remaining road anything else, and put up signs showing the name as it is. (And I've given the wrong number, but I'm far too lazy to look up the correct one.) -- 73 de ke9tv/2, Kevin _______________________________________________ Tagging mailing list Tagging@openstreetmap.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging
