Merge Request[edit]

U.S. Route 1A should merge with Bannered routes of U.S. Route 1. There is no reason to break-up Alternate Routes that happen to use "1A" as oppose to regular alternate routes and other bannered routes like business. --WashuOtaku (talk) 17:17, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Since these aren't really bannered routes, I have to disagree. Yes, they're alternates, but they're not bannered routes. ----DanTD (talk) 16:23, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
It's been over a year now and I believe most road editors noticed now that North Carolina does their alternate routes with a "A" in the shield as oppose with a banner for most alternate routes. However, we do not have a separate page for US 74A, US 221A, etc. So does this still make any sense that 1A is separated from the rest of the bannered routes? --WashuOtaku (talk) 15:45, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Stonington, CT 1A shield[edit]

Any reason why the US 1A shield won't show up in the Stonington, Connecticut infobox? ----DanTD (talk) 16:20, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

US 1A in Providence, RI[edit]

Is there any source for the routing of US 1A in Providence, RI? There is no signage in the field along that route, so that can't be used as a source. In particular, it says: "US 1A uses the one-way pairing of the East Providence Expressway eastbound while the westbound traffic is routed along Water, James, and South Main streets." Is there any source for that westbound routing? Since it sounds like US 1A SB exits I-195 WB at Exit 2, why doesn't it just turn left onto Point Street? Is there any indication that it really does go north on S. Main St, left onto James St, then left onto S. Water St, just to get back to Point St and make a right turn there? I checked the street view, and, like I said, there is no signage either way, but the left turn from S. Main St onto Point St is definitely legal. If nobody can provide a reliable source for this route, it should probably be deleted, and should just say that the route within Providence is not signed at all, and is not known to the general public.

Since nobody seems to have a response, I'm just going to go ahead and delete that routing. No, I have no source, but it seems nobody else has a source for any routing. Mitsguy2001 (talk) 06:51, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
