New York State Route 441

Thanks for your edit to this article. =) I had been considering adding NY-153 to the list but wasn't sure. Google Maps indicates that 153 ends just south of the 441 junction, meaning it never actually intersects with 441. However, the signage at the location implies that they do, and that certainly makes more sense. Thanks for removing the need for me to decide. =) Powers 19:29, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

New York State Route 111 Routebox

Thanks for your edits to the New York State Route 111 routebox. Although I was disappointed with your elimiation of the intersections with county roads(espescially Suffolk CR 17 and Suffolk CR 67, considering the significance of those roads), I understand your reasons for doing so. I'll have to find a way to mention NY 111's crossing of Suffolk CR 67(Long Island Motor Parkway) in a future update. ---- DanTD 19:09, 3 June 2006 (EST)

By the way, have you noticed how many shieds are mysteriously disappearing? ---- DanTD 23:44, 22 June 2006 (EST)

    • Wow! That was fast. Thanks a lot. If I knew you were going to be able to make those so quickly, I would've requested more. ---- DanTD 12:03, 23 June 2006 (EST)

Ultimatley, I'd like to see every route done for the sake of the whole project. However, the ones I just mentioned are my most immediate concerns. DanTD 23:25, 23 June 2006 (EST)

I know some of these roads are decommissioned, but the shields could still be good for something. In any case, if you haven't looked at Kuroki Mio 2006's list, the links for the NY 31F & NY 120A shields have disappeared. DanTD 7:25, 28 June 2006 (EST)

Palisades Interstate Parkway shield

Is there any way you could create a Palisades Interstate Parkway shield? I wanted to add it to the page I wrote about NY 59, but it can still be useful for other projects. --DanTD 14:03, 30 June 2006 (EST)

Map request: US 20A NY

Map of Alt U.S. 20 in New York

Greetings. I've uploaded a map of U.S. Route 20 A to the commons per your request. If it is to your liking, feel free to put it in the article. If you'd like a change, just let me know. Stratosphere 02:09, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

A request.

Hey. Maps produced as requested.

Requested Maps!
Map of U.S. 219 Map of I-390
Map of I-490 (NY) Map of I-590

For some reason the thumbs or image pages on commons wouldn't load, but clicking on the "Download super duper high res ubermax" link loads it. I dunno, hopefully it fixes itself. Cheers. Stratosphere 06:43, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

See if the new one works! Stratosphere 19:10, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
I uploaded a new one to [1], check it out. Stratosphere 03:29, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

PA 739

I don't know how you stumbled on good ol' 739, but thanks for the niftier infobox. Snazzy! As for the shield, I'd like to know how everyone is making SVGs. What's the advantage over a GIF?
Kether83 02:54, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

US Route X (New York)

Eventually, yes (for most of them). See for instance U.S. Route 6 in Pennsylvania. --SPUI (T - C) 09:43, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: my thanks

No thanks necessary, although it is appreciated. =) Powers 11:08, 17 July 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for that Barnstar although you're the one who deserves it since you have done a lot of the setup and cleanup as well. I know I haven't been doing things as "neat" as possible but I will definitely try and do better. Thanks again. --Polaron | Talk 15:49, 17 July 2006 (UTC)


Already possible - see Interstate 283. Alternately you could use state=NY and type=Interstate. --SPUI (T - C) 02:42, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Pennsylvania Highways as a reference

I'm not sure about its precision for years. For instance, [2] says that PA 3 was assigned in 1924, but pahighways says 1925. Pahighways also says that these were eliminated in 1930, but this 1929 official map already lacks them. --SPUI (T - C) 04:19, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Pennsylvania Route 18

TMF, I appreciate that there may be issues with the article formatting for Pennsylvania Route 18, but I really need to know specifically what is wrong with it; "Does not conform to project standards" is not enough information for me to go on. Are the tables not preferred, or just elements in the tables? I would like to have a better idea of what is desired and not desired regarding what I have contributed. --Homefryes 15:10, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: NY Route Articles (Part 2)

Thanks for your advice. I appreciate it. --JB82 19:34, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Shields Up!

Thanks for putting up all the PA Route shields to fill List of crossings of the Susquehanna River or did you just do them all? Hmm, no I see some 4 digit ones are still missing (1001, 1011, 3005). If you were just doing a few, I still have a few counties to swim through for that list, stay tuned. Guess that's what I get for liking the second largest river on the eastern seaboard. Now if topozone only had a way to generate perfect {{coor dms}} format.--J Clear 01:01, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

When you get a moment, PA-187.svg is the last PA shield needed for the crossings article. And if you know any hard core NY highway folks, I'm burned out on that list finishing the PA sections and the NY sections remain stubs and unformatted. Thanks.--J Clear 01:01, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

The Original "New Standard" Articles

I'll try and convert the listed routes to the current standard when I can. Great work on making the junction table easier to implement. --Polaron | Talk 16:37, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

VT road naming

I'm not really familiar with what the correct or common names for Vermont state highways are. I'm pretty sure that all the New England states use a variant of "Route" rather than a variant of "Highway". But which specific variant -- whether "Vermont Route", "Vermont State Route", "State Route", or just "Route" -- I have no idea. Of the two conventions in use currently, I'd probably go with "Vermont Route" rather than "Vermont State Highway". --Polaron | Talk 02:38, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

A while ago I determined that Vermont Route X, abbreviated VT Route X, is the most common usage. --SPUI (T - C) 03:47, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Done - Vermont Route 4A now uses it. --SPUI (T - C) 18:00, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Shield request

I was hoping you could pretty-pretty-please make a shield for Pennsylvania Route 413? Many thanks in advance. Let me know on my talk page when/if you do. -- NORTH talk 23:29, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you so much. I personally don't need anymore at the moment, but you may want to take a look at Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania and update the shields in the exit list to the new SVG ones. -- NORTH talk 03:03, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
Excellent and thank you. I lack the ability to make svg images, so I'm glad someone decided it's time. What program do you use to make them? Thanks. --MPD01605 (T / C) 19:14, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
Agreed, great job on the exit list! -- NORTH talk 21:51, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

NY 111 before 1972

I don't know if you're aware of this, but New York State Route 111 was around before 1972. In fact it predates World War 2.

DanTD 13:02, 27 July 2006 (EST)

Well, since the realignment took place in 1966(not 1972), perhaps you should change the current alingnment date for the infobox.

NY 104 map

NY 104

Hey, map is up. I took the liberty of post editing some shields on there to spruce it up since you're going for featured article. I need to figure out how to import the shield SVGs into ArcMap, then I could take this liberty all the time :P Cheers. Stratosphere (talk - Contrib) 03:45, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Another request

Hey, just started working on your map request of the Rochester area. I need a bit more specifics from you. When you say you don't want any highlighting, do you mean just that? Normally interstates are red and US Routes orange, but I can make all the roads the same color and thickness if you're going to draw over them or something. I just want to know before I upload one, since making a map usually takes about 30 minutes. Cheers. Stratosphere (talk - Contrib) 23:52, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Rochester Highways

Let me know if this works. Stratosphere (talk - Contrib) 00:59, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

New map's up. Stratosphere (talk - Contrib) 01:47, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Vermont Roads WikiProject

Hi, first I'd like to say thank you for undertaking such a project, and I am glad to be of assistance as needed. However, reading the project page, I found one of the instructions to be slightly confusing, and would like to offer the following revision -

Important notes regarding the routebox: When listing the previous and next routes, please remain chronological, regardless of route type (example: VT 155, I-189, VT 191, etc.). Please see List of Routes in Vermont for a list.

While the note on priority is good, its also a moot point - there are no instances in Vermont (to my knowledge) of a State Route being similarly numbered as an Interstate or U.S. Route. --Raj Fra 15:42, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Final state highway naming conventions debate

TwinsMetsFan, your participation is welcome in the Wikipedia:State route naming conventions poll. Please give your input as to the process by 23:59 UTC on August 8.

PA State Routes

If you wouldn't mind, could you make a shield of PA Route 581? Thank you! --myselfalso 14:56, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
