County Roads

A few counties in Mississippi number roads using a "County Road XX" system. These should each have relations with network=US:MS:<County Name Here> ref=XX, replacing XX with the route number. Each way should have a ref=CR XX, replacing XX with the route number. It is also a good idea to keep the name of each route as "County Road XX".

Useful Data Sources

TIGER/Line Files - Landmarks - this seems to be the best GIS data source for many area boundaries such as parks and airports.

MDOT Traffic Volume Application - This webpage, hosted by the Mississippi Department of Transportation, is a good place to find traffic volumes for different roads when making decisions about road classifications.

Mississippi Automated Resource Information System (MARIS) - The only real statewide GIS portal for Mississippi. Contains a lot of useful datasets, but unfortunately none of their imagery can be used in OpenStreetMap due to a misconfiguration of their HTTPS.
