And lots of lanes entered as distinct ways (implying that one can't
change lanes), when it's a lane count that would be appropriate.

What a mess.  I'm tempted to put my Garmin GPS into simulation mode and
have it simulate various entry and exit combinations.  But I already
know it'd be a dog's breakfast.

If that was in my area I'd be inclined to fix it up and put in some note
tags explaining why.
