...to see how the map looks[edit]

Longest continuous freeway?[edit]

It has at-grade intersections out west; is it still the longest after eliminating this part? --NE2 12:53, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Over 10 years later and this still hasn't really been dealt with. I mean as I said below, maybe sources don't feel that they need to be eliminated since it still counts as a freeway/motorway even if it doesn't met what many people consider as a freeway/motorway, but we have no sources, so who knows?

New exits in Orange County?[edit]

Reconstruction in the Rose City-Vidor area seems to have reconfigured or eliminated several exits. I've made some exit list updates elsewhere in the state but don't have enough info or familiarity for this particular section. Anybody want to take a crack at it?ESRoads (talk) 16:27, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Lede inaccuracies[edit]

... the Texas segment of I-10, maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation, is the longest continuous untolled freeway ...

There are a few small inaccuracies in this bit of the lede. First, not all of I-10 is untolled. There are toll lanes on I-10 through Houston. While these are optional toll lanes, they nonetheless are toll lanes, and so, it is inccorrect to say the entire route is untolled. Second, I-10 is not continuously a freeway throughout the state. There are a few ranch entrances directly onto I-10 in the western part of the state. While these are relatively few and far between, they do break up the continuity of the freeway.

Since these are not especially important statements, I have changed the lede to delete them rather than to clarify the minutiae.

As I noted, the optional toll lanes do not negate the untolled nature of the highway, nor do a few random at-grade driveways. I have once again restored the information to the article. Imzadi 1979  17:12, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
As you noted where? I can't see any other comment of yours on this talk page. And while arguing in edit summaries tends to be a bad idea, you don't seem to have said anything useful in them either, frankly the IPs edit summaries were much more useful than yours [1] [2]. Personally while I agree with the toll point, the IP does seem to have a good point that under many definitions, direct ranch entrances mean that something is not a freeway. However ultimately, as always on wikipedia, it doesn't really matter what I, you or the IP think. What matters is what sources say. And the only source provided there doesn't seem to say anything of the sort [3]. Now this statement is in the lead, so it may not need direct sources in the lead. Except that as far as I can tell, the claim isn't even mentioned anywhere in the article proper, as should generally be the case for claims made in the lead. So likely a double whammy. I haven't removed the claim even though I and the IP are IMO fully justified in doing so. But if a source doesn't come in a few weeks, don't be surprised if someone does so whatever arguments you want to make about why you are right. If a source is added, it would be good if the flaw in the article of claims in the lead not being mentioned in the article could also be fixed. But either way, if a proper WP:RS is added, then since it still doesn't matter what you, I or the IP think the issue is dealt with unless a competing source is added. The issue is fixed in a much more compelling way than where you noted whatever you noted. P.S. If the claim is made somewhere in the article, apologies for missing it although it's a little weird 'long', 'contin' or 'toll' isn't used when this claim is made later.
