List of United States Numbered Highways

The following is a list of United States numbered highways. It includes U. S. Numbered Highways both past and present, with the former shaded in gray. Three-digit subsidiaries are grouped with their one- or two-digit parent; the list is based on American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials definitions, with up-to-date details on extensions and truncations, though distances are as of 1989. Discrepancies with state specifications are noted. There are several U. S. Highways that exist within one state. Since the current policy on numbering and designating US Highways was written in 1991, AASHTO has been in the process of eliminating all intrastate U. S. Highways less than 300 miles in length, "as as the State Highway Department and the Standing Committee on Highways of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials can reach agreement with reference thereto".

Novomessor albisetosus

Novomessor albisetosus known as the desert harvester ant, is a species of ant found in the United States and Mexico. A member of the genus Novomessor in the subfamily Myrmicinae, it was first described by Austrian entomologist Gustav Mayr in 1886, it was placed in the genus Aphaenogaster, but a recent phylogenetic study concluded that it is genetically distinct and should be separated. It has a ferruginous body color, it can be distinguished from other Novomessor species by subparallel eyes. N albisetosus is found under stones; the ants are active during the morning and evening but not when it is midday or the middle of the night. They forage for foods such as plant tissues and fruit, they cooperate when transporting large food items. Army ants are known to prey on this species. Nuptial flights begin in June. Workers are considered matured. Novomessor albisetosus was identified by Austrian entomologist Gustav Mayr in 1886, who first described the species as Aphaenogaster albisetosa. In 1895, Italian entomologist Carlo Emery classified Aphaenogaster as a subgenus of Stenamma, N. albisetosus was renamed Stenamma albisetosum.

Emery would transfer the species to the newly erected genus Novomessor, a genus he described in 1915 that included Novomessor cockerelli. In 1947, American entomologist Jane Enzmann described a new form, Novomessor cockerelli minor, she distinguished it from N. cockerelli by its smaller size, lighter color and more sculptured body shape. This taxon, was synonymized with N. albisetosus two years by American entomologist William Brown Jr. In 1974, Brown synonymized Novomessor with Aphaenogaster, N. albisetosus was thereby moved to that genus. Brown notes that the characters supposed to distinguish the two genera are not strong enough when one considers the global fauna of this complex. However, entomologists Bert Hölldobler, R. Stanton and M. S. Engel revived the genus in 1976 on the basis that N. albisetosus and N. cockerelli had an exocrine gastral glandular system, not found in any examined Aphaenogaster ant. In 1982, English myrmecologist Barry Bolton argued that basing the genus on such a feature could not justify the separation of Novomessor and Aphaenogaster.

In 2015, a phylogenetic study done by entomologists B. B. Demarco and A. I. Cognato concluded that Novomessor was genetically distinct from Aphaenogaster, the genus was revived from synonymy with N. albisetosus as one of the three known species. Morphologically, the promesonatal suture and the postpetiole are diagnostic for Novomessor ants and the three species share a closer relation with Veromessor than Aphaenogaster, they have different behaviorial and habitat characters that distinguishes them from other ant genera. Like N. cockerelli, N. albisetosus is known as the desert harvester ant. N. albisetosus is a medium-sized species with a moderately short body, measuring 6 to 8.5 millimeters. The body color of the ant is ferruginous, the legs are reddish brown and the petiole and abdomen are brownish black; the first segment of the abdomen, however, is brownish yellow. The tibia has clear bristles; the maxillae form a triangular isoscele, the mandibles have three comparatively large teeth. The head is noticeably long, longer than its total width.

The clypeus is longer than wide and is found in the middle of the head, forming two vertical stripes. Larvae of N. albisetosus measure 6.6 millimeters. The body is moderately stout and there is a slight constriction at the first and second abdominal somites. Spiracles are small and no spinules are on the integument. Body hairs are sparse; the antennae are small with three sensilla, the labrum is short. The mandibles are sclerotized, the apex forms a long slender tooth, medially curved; the maxillae are small with a spinulose apex. Larvae appear similar to those of N. ensifer, but N. ensifer larvae can be distinguished by the abundance of hair with long stouts found on the body. Several features allow N. albisetosus to be distinguished from other species in Novomessor. One such feature is; the sides of the head in front of the eyes are subparallel, but behind the eyes they become convex. N. albisetosus has spines that are more bent and curve downward, whereas the spines of N. cockerelli are bent inward.

Both species share a structured thorax, but the epinotal spines in N. albisetosus are just as long as the basal face of the epinotum. Meanwhile, N. cockerelli has shorter epinotal spines. N. albisetosus has a greater degree of opacity. It is hairier than N. albisetosus. The hairs taper from the base to the tip; the abdomen bears numerous hairs. The queens can be distinguished from each other by the cephalic structure, where the head of N. albisetosus is longer than it is broad, whereas the heads of N. cockerelli are decidedly longer than broad. The thorax of N. albisetosus is shorter and higher than in N. cockerelli. Differences in their sculptures and pilosity are less noticeable, but N. cockerelli has a

Tennessee State Route 262

State Route 262 is an east–west state highway in Middle Tennessee. It traverses Jackson counties. SR 262 begins in Macon County as a secondary highway at an intersection with SR 52 just east of Lafayette, it turns southeastward towards Willette crossing SR 56 and SR 80. It runs concurrently with SR 56 from Gidds Crossroads to near Goose Horn. SR 262 enters Jackson County close to the point where Macon and Jackson counties meet Smith County, but falls short of the Smith County line. SR 262 continues southeastward, runs concurrently with SR 85 for a short distance from Highland to Rough Point. SR 262 becomes a primary highway and goes southeast to cross the Cumberland River and end on the west side of Gainesboro at a junction with SR 53. Prior to 1982, SR 262 was designated SR 85A

Celbridge

Celbridge is a town and townland on the River Liffey in County Kildare, Ireland. It is 23 km west of Dublin. Both a local centre and a commuter town within the Greater Dublin Area, it is located at the intersection of the R403 and R405 regional roads; as of the 2016 census, Celbridge was the third largest town in County Kildare by population, with over 20,000 residents. The name Celbridge is derived from the Irish Cill Droichid meaning "Church of bridge" or "Church by the bridge"; the Irish name was anglicised as Kildroicht, Kildroght, Kildrout. Celbridge was for a period the third largest town in County Kildare; the population increased by 7.8% between 2002 and 2006. This was the town's most rapid growth rate in absolute terms. In percentage terms it was a slowdown on previous growth rates which were at one stage the highest in Ireland; as of the census of 2011, there were 19,537 people living in Celbridge. Of the 2006 population of 17,262. 8,732 were male and 8,530 female, 4,307 were aged 0–14, 2,678 were aged 15–24, 6,219 were aged 35–44, 3,400 were aged 45–64 and 658 were aged 65 years and over.

Of these 9,586 were single, 6,602 were married, 715 were widowed and 359 were separated. Only 4,146 of the 16,980 who were recorded by the census as "usually resident in Celbridge" had been born in County Kildare. 10,071 had been born elsewhere in Ireland and 2,763 were born outside Ireland. Celbridges's two main active parish churches are those of Christ Church. St Patrick's forms part of the Catholic Parish of Celbridge and Straffan within the Archdiocese of Dublin. Christ Church is the Anglican Parish Church for Celbridge and forms part of the grouped Parish of Celbridge and Newcastle-Lyons in the Archdiocese of Dublin and Diocese of Glendalough. Celbridge Christian Church is a non-denominational independent church formed in 2005; the congregation is drawn from many nations and numbers over 85 adults and 70+ children. Its current pastor is Paul R Carley. Pastor Carley has ministered in the United States, United Kingdom, France and Kenya. Celbridge has six primary schools: Primrose Hill, St Brigids, Aghards known as Scoil Mochua, Scoil na Mainistreach, North Kildare Educate Together National School, St Patrick's located in the GAA grounds on the Newcastle road.

There is a residential special school, Saint Raphael's, for children with a learning disability. Celbridge has one of the few Primary Montessori Schools in Ireland, Weston Primary Montessori School, established in 2016 by the parents and teachers of the former Glebe School; this school provides a Montessori education to children from 3–12 years and is located on the grounds of Barnhall Rugby Club. Celbridge's growth has created some traffic congestion, including at peak times. A 2008 report by Kildare County Council attributed some of the issues to the single bridge over the Liffey in the town, issues with illegal parking and parking enforcement; the Celbridge Interchange which connects the town to the motorway as well as the Intel and Hewlett Packard plants in Leixlip, was opened in 2003 to help address related traffic issues, with some success. Pay parking applies along Main St. and other roads in the town centre, with some free parking available at weekends. There are car parks behind The Mucky Duck Pub and Walsh's Pharmacy.

The town is served by Dublin Bus along the 67 and 67X routes with a nitelink service running on a Friday and Saturday nights. These routes link the town to the city centre as well as the nearby towns of Maynooth; the Town is served by Bus Éireann route 115 and 120. Iarnród Éireann runs commuter rail services to a station in Hazelhatch, about 3 km from Celbridge village. There is a limited feeder bus service to/from the town. Commuter suburban rail services from Kildare to Dublin city centre serve Hazelhatch, although these are quite limited on Sundays; the service brings passengers to Grand Canal Dock. The station is located on one of the most important InterCity lines in the country, with services to Cork and Galway, however these do not stop at Hazelhatch station. Under the Transport21 plan, Hazelhatch-City is to be electrified to provide a new DART service to Balbriggan, using the DART Underground in the city centre; however this has been indefinitely postponed due to lack of funding for the project.

Celbridge GAA park and centre on the Hazelhatch Road was opened in 1996, ending 52 years without a home, the club having lost its field in Ballymakeally after a court case in 1944. Celbridge GAA club is the third oldest club in County Kildare being formed on 15 August 1885, eight months after the GAA was founded in Thurles. In 1890 there were two clubs in the parish, one based in Kilwogan, Celbridge Shamrocks with 64 members, the other at Hazelhatch where Irish Harpers had 70 members. Celbridge play at senior level in both codes, they won their first Kildare Senior Football Championship in 2008. Celbridge GAA had won i

San Jacinto River (California)

The San Jacinto River is a 42-mile-long river in Riverside County, California. The river's headwaters are in San Bernardino National Forest, but the lower portion of the 765-square-mile watershed is urban and agricultural land; as a endorheic watershed, contiguous with other Great Basin watersheds, the western side of the San Jacinto Basin is a portion of the Great Basin Divide. The river is formed at the west base of the San Jacinto Mountains by the confluence of its North and South forks; the South Fork flows from near Santa Rosa Summit, through Pine Meadow and Garner Valley to Lake Hemet, which holds 14,000 acre feet of water. Hemet Dam was built in 1895 to supply water to the city of Hemet. Downstream of the dam, the South Fork joins the North Fork east of the town of Valle Vista near Highway 74, the main stem of the San Jacinto River continues northwest until it discharges into Mystic Lake, a couple of miles east of Lake Perris. Overflow from the river flows southwest, passing under Ramona Expressway and Interstate 215, through Railroad Canyon to Railroad Canyon Reservoir called Canyon Lake, which has a capacity of 11,900 acre feet.

Downstream of Railroad Canyon Dam, the river continues flowing west southwest through the canyon through the Temescal Mountains for about 3 miles until it drains into Lake Elsinore. The lake has no outflow other than evaporation, but in years of heavy rainfall it overflows into Temescal Creek, which flows northwest to the Santa Ana River in Corona, California.
