needs-jctint[edit]

I just converted the table to use {{TNint}}, yet the banner said it didn't need to be converted because |need-jctint=no was incorrectly set.

In any case, the junction list needs location information, mileposts and some copy editing to make sure that the formating in {{jct}} is correct. I trust that someone familiar with the area can handle that. I can assist with the technical side of things though. Imzadi 1979  19:23, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm familiar with the area, but the problem is, this made up of different numbered highways, and is rarely referred to by them. The entire loop is simply referred to as "APD-40."Bmag32 (talk) 02:09, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
@Bmag32: that may be, but the table needs the locations added. For example, is the I-75 interchange within the boundaries of a city or village? If so, that city or village should appear in the location column. If this roadway passes through multiple counties, a County column is needed. M-553 (Michigan highway)#Major intersections shows a high-quality, single-county junction list, and M-6 shows another high-quality junction list for a highway in multiple counties. (Just ignore the exit column for M-6.) Mileposts should be given showing the distances along the highway as well. Imzadi 1979  03:34, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I've added some map references, if that helps.75.138.44.170 (talk) 16:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
The one allowed me to insert the missing locations, however we still need to add the missing mileposts. Imzadi 1979  19:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
And citations for the history. What I wrote came from old copies of newspapers I own, and I have displaced them since and have not yet been able to find them on Google News. But I am still looking. The mileposts will be difficult to find, but they might could be found by measurements on the Google Maps source.Bmag32 (talk) 05:55, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
I just did that.24.107.255.80 (talk) 22:48, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

OK, but what's the 40?[edit]

Appalachian corridors are lettered, not numbered. What's the 40 supposed to represent? If it's named after State Route 40, why doesn't it follow that route to the North Carolina line? --NE2 18:17, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

This is the name of a highway that is part of corridor K, not the entire corridor. In fact the TN-60 section of the road isn't even part of the Appalachian Highway system at all; it just takes that name because it was built about the same time. There's not much out there about the history of this road. The "40" may have something to do with SR-40, but it seems I read somewhere that it stands for "Appalachian Development #40." This article needs additional citations, maybe some newspaper articles from Google News.Bmag32 (talk) 02:09, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Where does http://www.tdot.state.tn.us/projectplanning/studies/APD40IJSBRADLEYCOReportwithAppendix.pdf support the facts being cited (I-75 to South Lee Highway was built in 1968, and the original plan ending at US 64, with SR 60 moving)? --NE2 23:13, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
Also, the link you added ("Appalachian Highway Finally Completed, After Six Long Years") is broken. --NE2 23:17, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Does the secondary part of SR 311 still exist?[edit]

http://www.tdot.state.tn.us/maps/city/Cleveland.PDF shows SR 311 leaving the bypass onto Dalton Pike to end as SR 74. It doesn't appear to be signed, but that doesn't mean it no longer exists. --NE2 16:26, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
