  4. Get a property for interchanges, to show the roads that intersect at the interchange.
  5. Figure out how to do interchanges, highway systems, lists.
  6. Manually add terminii properties.
  7. Manually add date properties.
  8. Add coordinates for the interchanges.
  9. Look into deploying at a few friendly wikis.
    Simple English Wikipedia has the map= parameter hooked into Wikidata, and all articles are using it.
    English Wikipedia has the map= parameter hooked into Wikidata for IBR and IRJ, but only a few articles (including all USRD FAs) are using it.
    Other parameters could be deployed to Infobox road junction and Infobox state highway system.
