Virginia Route 289, the new number of the Franconia-Springfield ParkwayVirginia route 294, the new number for the Prince William ParkwayUPDATE: As of March 15, 2012, these route markers are back on Google Maps. In fact, the old secondary numbers have been removed which could leave to confusion.

A few weeks ago, I noted that Google Maps had within days added the newly assigned state route numbers, 294 and 289, to the Prince William Parkway and Franconia-Springfield Parkways, respectively. Those identifications are now gone.

The Virginia Department of Transportation surely hasn’t started posting the new numbers — maybe that’s why Google pulled them.
