[Talk-us] Fwd: Trunk versus motorway

That may be more of a note to motorists that "hey.. this freeway is coming
to an end" rather than an absolute marker of "this freeway ends here at
this sign".

San Diego's own GIS system has it marked as I-8 all the way up to where it
splits into motorway links at Nimitz/Sunset Cliffs.

Arguing about where the motorway ends and a trunk/something else begins
before an at-grade intersection is just splitting hairs.   IMO, it's a
motorway all the way up to the intersection.  If you were standing with
your back to the intersection looking down the motorway, there'd be nothing
visible that would convince you it's not a motorway.
