I would lean against including these.  They seem a lot like New York's reference routes (signed only on the little green markers).
Agreed.

It's marked as route 511 in the 6.0 shapefiles, dated 2009-08-26. If it was unsigned before 2011, it's probably safe to say it's remained unsigned since. The rest of the evidence points to it being a minor/unsigned route, so I'm fine with leaving it out.

NL511:
The route is included in the shapefiles, but not shown on any of the online tile maps. We can't use GMSV to verify whether it's signed or not as there's no coverage in the area. In any case, here it is; just some raw data dumped from the shapefiles (RTNUMBER1 = 511) and manually stitched together...

I ran the data through CHM's Waypoint Editor to see where the route went. I don't recall seeing any signs for NL 511 from NL 510 northbound in that area, when I drove through Labrador in 2011. I was trying pretty hard to clinch every numbered route in Labrador on that trip, so I was looking for such signage. But I can't rule out signage on SB NL510, or elsewhere on route 511, or that the route became signed since 2011.

My copy of the official highway map, also from 2011, also shows no road in that location, not even an unnumbered or hyphenated-numbered route.

The very beginnings of some peer review...

NL353:
This is shown on OSM, and in the shapefiles, as route 350-17. I was unable to find any route number signage at route 350, the southern or northern beginning of the route, or at the intersection with "route 350-18".
Looks like this one should be left out. What was the rationale for including it?

NL511:

NL510:

New Roadway - Hwy 43 to Hwy 779

PROJECT INFORMATION

Location: Hwy 633 from Hwy 43 to Hwy 779,
14.4 km in total.

Description: A planning study has been
completed to identify the future alignment and
configuration of Highway 633 between Highway
43 and Highway 779. The objectives of the study
are to confirm the feasibility and cost of
constructing Highway 633 on the previously
designated straight-through alignment, review
expected traffic changes in the highway network
with construction of the missing Highway 633
link, and identify future right-of-way
requirements and access points.

A Public Information Session was held on May 5,
2011 at Muir Lake Community Hall. Information
shown at the session is available for download.

Schedule: Planning has been completed.
Construction is outside the three-year program.

Consultant: AMEC Earth & Environmental

For more information, contact:  Roberta
Clifford, P. Eng., Sr. Transportation Engineer,
AMEC Earth & Environmental, ph. 780-377-3692,

With this as the most recent info on the Alberta Provincial Highway Projects site, I'm more comfortable taking the path I was already considering for AB633; including two sections:
AB633, from AB757 to AB43.
AB633 (St. Albert), from AB779 to AB2.

Here's my original analysis, transferring the text into this post from the AB600 - 699 master post upthread.

Section 1, AB757 to AB43:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Asphaltic Surface Course - Final
  Include.
Section 2, AB43 to Range Road 21:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Graded / Gravelled
  GMSV: No signage pointing east from AB43 in May 2013; no imagery further east.
  Include? Treat as unsigned; wait for updated GMSV or field reports.
Section 3, Range Road 21 to (53.657542°, -114.150049°):
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = None; L_STNAME_C = "633 Highway"
  ProChart: Proposed Route
  GMSV: No coverage
  Do not include.
Section 4, (53.657542°, -114.150049°) to (53.657541°, -114.137948°):
  355072-2 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.657542&lon=-114.150049
  355072-1 +243004-2 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.657542&lon=-114.148982
  243004-1 +82103-2 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.657541&lon=-114.141671
  82103-1 +15433-2 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.657541&lon=-114.141507
  15433-1 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.657541&lon=-114.137948

  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Graded / Gravelled
  GMSV: No coverage
  Include? A Segment of Independent Not-Much-Utility. Assume it's unsigned; wait for updated GMSV or field reports.
Section 5, (53.657541°, -114.137948°) to Range Road 15:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = None; L_STNAME_C = "633 Highway"
  ProChart: Proposed Route
  GMSV: No coverage
  Do not include.
Section 6, Range Road 15 to Range Road 14:
  GIS: No road segment here
  Satellite: No road segment here
  ProChart: Proposed Route
  GMSV: No coverage
  Do not include.
Section 7, Range Road 14 to AB779:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Graded / Gravelled
  GMSV: just this in Aug 2009
  Include? Follow Section 2's precedent and wait for definitive evidence of signage to the west.
Section 8, AB779 to St. Albert:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Graded / Gravelled
  GMSV: Signed east from AB44. From there...?
  Include.
Section 9, St. Albert limits to AB2:
  GIS: RTNUMBER1 = 633
  ProChart: Multi-lane / Divided
  GMSV: no shields at AB2, RgeRd260, or corporate limits just west of there.
        blade signs = "Sec Rd 633" @ RgeRd260; "Villeneuve Rd" @ RayGibbon Dr & east.
  Highway Connector?
  Include for now; ask @julmac his opinion; either take his advice or not.

The southern temp. route / detour that OSM & Google show via RgeRd20, TwpRd541, and RgeRd14 appears apocryphal; I'm unable to confirm it in any official source. (Official sources *do* seem to point to a routing via TwpRd542 -- albeit a proposed & incomplete one.) If it turns out to be signed, I can add it later on.

A project is nearing completion to fill in the gap in Hilo between the current east end of HI 200 (Saddle Rd./Daniel K. Inouye Highway) and the west end of HI 2000 (Puainako St.). That project is moving faster than I had expected, and could be completed in the next few weeks. Part of the project is improving Saddle Rd. and Puainako St. within their existing rights of way, but there will be several miles of new alignment. That new alignment is not yet shown on Mapnik or other online mapping (which tends to be slow in catching up with new road construction in Hawaii, perhaps because there's so little of it), so I might not be able to quickly update the route files when the project is completed.

I also don't yet know whether HI 2000 will be folded into HI 200.

Also, in western Maui an extension of the Lahaina Bypass (HI 3000) is well under way, though I don't know how solid is the estimated January 2018 completion date. This will extend the highway south of its existing southern end, and tie into HI 30, making the highway a more useful bypass of Lahaina (though the bypass will for now connect directly to HI 30 only at its southern end).

Especially if the HI 200/2000 and HI 30/3000 projects are completed by next spring, it might be time for me to fly back to Hawaii for some "field checking". I expect my vision to be considerably improved by the cataract surgeries (the second one just last week) after my trip to Maui in January 2017.
