Major Highways

Current definition is "A big highway, usually 3+ lanes, with minimal stops – mostly exits and interchanges, bt possibly with some intersections and junctions "

Does 3+ lanes mean three or more lanes in the same direction? If a highway has mostly exits and interchanges and has two lanes eastbound and two lanes westbound, is it a major highway?

Primary Street

Current definition is "Other streets or BLVD w/ stoplights that are relatively used (such as Middlefield Rd. in Menlo Park or Park blvd. in Oakland)"

Does it have to be a stop light? What about other traffic control devices, such as stop signs on adjoining streets, in areas where there are not many traffic signals? Bugmuncher 02:58, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Service roads

Are service roads really frontage roads, or are these roads such as park access roads? I assumed that these were roads for such purposes as hospital emergency room access, roads within places like Disneyland, etc.


The Cul-de-sac type of road is not an option when editing roads. Please add.

Cul-de-sac is not a road type. It's just another name for "dead-end".

Two roads the connect/merge on a residential street

PLease advise on proper protocol to map edit two different named streets that meet on a road curve or bend.
