Nah, the best place to test route shield hell is in GA. :) hehe.
Still, I think detour routes might be a good idea, but only if somebody is willing to keep track of the projects and fix everything once the construction is finished.

Subject: [Talk-us] Shield rendering and detours; tagging nicknames?

OK, wonder if we can get orange detour banners for routes as well?  Example relations can be found in the downtown Tulsa area, which has an interstate (244), two US routes (64, 75) and an Oklahoma state highway (51) detoured through the end of next year.  Also, thanks to the serious overload on route multiplexing, exacerbated by the construction, this would be a good area to test route shield hell.  I've also finally gotten around to adding relations for the LL Tisdale Parkway (http://www.alpsroads.net/roads/ok/cool_j/) and the Gilcrease Expressway (http://www.aaroads.com/shields/show.php?image=OK19720071) to test out city route shields.

Also, what would be an appropriate tag for a completely informal name for something that is getting uptake by way of traffic reports?  Tulsa's Inner Dispersal Loop has been called the "Inner Detour Loop" by some reporters.
