neat finds: rerouted roads

Posted by Dion Dock on 7 September 2012 in English (English)

I really enjoy finding places where the roads have been relocated. It's living history to see how problem areas have been fixed. This seems to happen a fair amount with the TIGER import in the US; I guess it's hard for TIGER to know of every change over the years. Here's a good example of smoothing out a sharp corner (view the Bing! imagery to see where the road used to go). Something for the future archeologists to find too. :)
