I split the ways where medians are present and do my best to tag access,
maxspeed, maxwidth, maxheight as known.  Would be handy if more routers had
an idea what payment you intend to use, since Pikepass users pay like an
old AT&T commercial at speeds between 30 and 75 MPH (depending on age of
the plaza, ones built in my lifetime are full-speed-ahead for pikepass
users) at most plazas. Cimarron Turnpike could very well be the only
exception in the OTA system, thanks to horseshoe ramps for exits at toll
plazas, forcing Pikepass users to wait in line in the Cash/Check/Tourist
Information line when entering and exiting.

PS, if you use that lane when there's a line at the toll plaza and start
playing 20 questions for tourist information...I hate you.  Go play 20
Questions at the concessions plaza where you're out of the way...
