TX 249 Proposed

Thanks to whoever added the State Highway 249 proposed extension between Tomball and Navasota. I had planned on adding it, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. I used the plans from TXDOT to add some details to it and renamed it to "State Highwy 249 (Proposed)".

Has feeder roads. This includes US Interstate Highways, Toll roads, Freeways and State Highways as long as they are divided and grade separated. Usually has shoulders or breakdown lanes. This covers US Interstate Highways and toll roads.

Use these tags:
Highway=motorway
Oneway=yes
Maxspeed=number
Minspeed=number
Name=name of the motorway
Ref=reference_name
Lanes=number
Use these tags for special situations:
Highway=motorway_link for entrance and exit ramps.
Highway=motorway_junction for connections to motorway_links and add the exit number.
Bridge=yes at bridges and overpasses.
Layer=1 for the bridge segment.
Tunnel=yes at tunnels.


Motorway_link: An entrance/exit ramp to a motorway.

Use these tags:
Highway=motorway_link
Highway=motorway_junction for node connections to motorway_links and add the exit number.


Trunk: Divided highway with few at grade crossings. Usually limited access but may have a few intersections controlled by traffic signals, some private and business driveways.
