I'm home for the weekend. But Google Maps' generally excellent turn by turn directions seem to have an issue with the Albany turn off the Thruway - it's got that last-thing-on-a-Friday vibe. Not inappropriately on this occasion.
The audio says:
"Take Exit 'exit 23' for Alabama nine west toward Albany/Troy," and the display shows:
A couple of minutes later, "Alabama nine west" seems to have turned into good old US 9W.
Which is something of a relief because making the trek to Albany is quite far enough - Alabama is rather more than I'd reckoned with.
