Good point.  I didn't see the shape file, so not sure how the data was
organized.  MARIS data wasn't quite as complete in some parts and did have
RUE in a separate field (similar to other Spanish and French abbreviations)
in others -- probably from bubbling up GIS data from disparate local
systems into one state wide system
