Oh, it will work for seasonal? Great !

Re the dawn to disk parkways, i've added a NOTE - need to field check the
signage and gates to be sure of which segments. ​

(Guessing the router in my Garmin wouldn't notice anyway , but without
either live traffic data or an AVOID INTERSTATE setting no sane router
would choose that one ever. But when the sun is setting into I-93 drivers'
eyes at rush-hour, the wooded parkway is a major win for the few that know
it's there.)
