Random noteEdit

Kind of a funny note, but if you go south of the "stub," there's a message. It says "Go Jags." http://maps.google.com/maps?q=30.183008,-81.513975&num=1&t=h&sll=30.183224,-81.512021&sspn=0.005119,0.00795&ie=UTF8&ll=30.183335,-81.513759&spn=0.005119,0.00795&z=17&iwloc=A 98.211.196.23 (talk) 06:24, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

That "sign" is no longer present, since the construction began. Allen 21:06, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Mileposts and route description directionEdit

I've removed the "written in the wrong direction, rewrite based on mileposts" tag, as apparently this route is going to be mileposted from north to south, starting at the I-295 junction - so the current writeup is correct. FDOT works in mysterious ways... - The Bushranger One ping only 18:15, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

The problem is that USRD articles ares supposed to be written in west–east and south–north orientations. Check with Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads for more information. Allen (Morriswa) (talk) 18:37, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
USRD articles should be south-north or west-east as mileposts are generally done that way. All articles should be that way to keep consistent including exceptions. See Atlantic City Expressway as an exception. Dough4872 18:49, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Except in this case that would be both against the mileposts, and would be confusing on account of the road being built from north to south; you would have to describe part, then "go back" to describe the yet-unbuilt part. - The Bushranger One ping only 20:59, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
USRD articles are not bound by going south-to-north or west-to-east, even if 98% of the articles are written that way. Following the mileposts, whenever they are assigned, is just fine. –Fredddie 22:37, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
I did not see any reliable source in this article to confirm the highway is inventoried or posted in any particular direction. How about we wait until the highway actually opens before we pass judgment on its order of operations?  V 23:10, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
I did notice that most articles were written South to North. Being that this road is being built in phases north to south, with no real final southern terminus planned, I couldn't figure out a logical way to start the description from the south. If someone figures out a clean way to write the description in the opposite direction by all means do it. Just wanted to be bold and get something moving here. Also, would love to see where you found that they are numbering it north to south. Makes sense as it would be a pain to renumber the whole thing every time they move the southern terminus. - Aalox (Say HelloMy Work) 15:10, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

I want to say there was a case in Michigan where something like this happened, so we might want to do whatever was done there. Pinging @Imzadi1979:... —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 23:13, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

IIRC, it was a diagonal highway that was signed north-south, but mileposted east-west. –Fredddie 23:33, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
M-115 (Michigan highway) is it. Imzadi 1979  00:38, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
