What the frick?

Posted by Circeus on 12 March 2009 in English (English)

I just came across this oddly located highway=motorway. Anybody got any idea why the frick it's tagged that way?

EDIT: Quick examination of the satellite image reveals it to apparently be some sort of slip or gravel road.

Presumably because it comes from the TIGER import which is notoriously inaccurate.

In TIGER there was only one classification for link roads, and so they all ended up as motorway_link. If you look all around the USA you'll see them sprinkled around all over the place.

Good news is that some over-zealous person has already deleted it. Or at least edited it to the extent a new way was created...
