exit 142[edit]

This article is about I-90 (Ohio), not about the Ohio Turnpike, although they are the same road for 142 miles coming east from the Indian border. I find this in the table for exit 142:

"I-80 west / Ohio Tpk. – Toledo"

"Eastbound exit, westbound entrance; eastern end of the I-80/Ohio Tpk. concurrency"

Come to think of it, I will change the "concurrency" note to read "eastern end of concurrency with I-80/Ohio Tpk." to cut down on possible confusion, because I-80 and Ohio Tpk. are the same road on both sides of this interchange. If you are actually exiting I-90 here, you can only do so eastbound, staying on I-80/Ohio Tpk. as I-90 jogs over to merge with Ohio 2. Other than the "concurrency" note, I will make no change at this time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:47, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Lake and Ashtabula County Exits[edit]

Added notes for exits in these counties. If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free. I am also entirely open to any suggestions. Sandhillman (talk) 22:46, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Since no one's replied, I'll say that they seem rather verbose and redundant, especially since these routes are generally not mentioned at the respective exits in the field, so in a BOLD move I'm removing them as a whole from where they have been. However, I will note the parallel 6/20/84/307 in the route description section so the general information will remain. Mapsax (talk) 13:40, 23 February 2013 (UTC) Edited I should mention the basis of my edit with respect to what one should do (MOS:RJL) and shouldn't do (WP:NOTTRAVEL, though I'm reinterpreting that somewhat) in this context.

After reading the links above and the route description, I concur with your changes. I guess I got just a little carried away on the notes. ;-) The last paragraph in the route description seems adequate to alert others to parallel routes accessible from some interchanges. Thanks. Sandhillman (talk) 20:13, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Sure. You'll also see that I semi-re-reverted in the exit list notes column. Mapsax (talk) 20:47, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick response. I wonder if Harpersfield Covered Bridge should be included under notes for exit 218? Just a thought. Sandhillman (talk) 22:51, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
The link for Harpersfield Covered Bridge was added in the note to exit 218. Let me know if this would be a problem since it is a nearby point of interest. Sandhillman (talk) 01:47, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, I don't think it should be there, not that it's not notable, but because of the precedent. It has the advantage of having a WP article; however, it is not listed on signs on I-90; moreover, nothing else is listed along the route with regard to attractions. Note that this is treading on WP:NOTTRAVEL a bit again; you could imagine how full the notes column would get if we mentioned every feature within five miles of I-90 with a WP article plus everything mentioned on signs (I'm guessing that Progressive Field would beat the Harpersfield bridge in terms of notability) plus whatever else editors would deem as worthy of adding. As I'm sure that you know, even just adding the rest of Ashtabula County's covered bridges near 90 would fill the notes column substantially. It's not that this is totally prohibited: From MOS:RJL: Destinations: Locations and roads as presented on guide signs for the junction. Other locations should not be listed unless that location is extremely notable and well known; an entry in the notes column such as "Serves Missouri State University" can be used. Note "extremely," though, and also note that in all four examples on the MOS page, in addition to the rest of the I-90 Ohio list, all comments in the "Notes" columns so far refer to the highway itself or crossing highways, not points of interest; that seems to be our template.
I don't own this article, of course, so if you want to shoot a note off to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads notifying them of this discussion, feel free. Mapsax (talk) 16:15, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
I think you are correct about the revert. I will leave it be as I feel I still have a bit more to learn about Wikipedia. Sandhillman (talk) 01:43, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
So do I, so don't worry.... Mapsax (talk) 12:54, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
