I think we have a ringer with this J. Peterman-inspired response to my request for more information:
As one traveled up Wagner Place, the app instructs the wazer to turn left onto Pearl st and an immediate left onto the green ramp that leads to FDR drive. Unfortunately there is a No U-turn sign planted on the left side of Wagner at the intersection and an angry Traffic Officer who enforces it.

I suppose so, but I'm not an app expert.

You most likely won't have to.. ( YouTube - Check out the new Waze look! )

It's been around for some time now, I rarely see it though because I'm not often using Waze at the moment that someone is responding to one of the URs I managed. But it's definitely not brand new.

It's always nice to see this kind of reply...

As background, a reporter in Albuquerque saw a significant long-distance routing issue between there and Tucson, AZ. This is one that Google Maps and others could handle but Waze gave very inefficient routing. It turned out to be a functional classification issue for a well-traveled highway often used as a shortcut. The User Report dialog worked well, and at the end the reporter said:

The reporter on 02.02.2015 09:52 PM:

It works! ! You guys rock, thank you for your help.

Here's one UR for the developers:

"make map update so can choose between standard road or combined satellite + road"

I suppose I'll need everyone's vast experience to decipher this one:

Problem: funeral wierd
Reported on: May 01

I could imagine this from an outsider to a New Orleans-type funeral, but this one was in Colorado.

Hi Everyone... Rather than dilute a really fun Jolly Drivers topic board with technical debate, I would suggest going to the thread that is discussing various options. We could use your input. The board is here:

http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=41985

As far as splitting the roads, dbwiddis, you're right. You can use a single private road segment or two in series to do the same thing. This will not prevent one from navigating into or out of the private facility. This won't be prevent exiting routing.

I think there are a lot of solutions to this kind of installation, which exists all over the place in many forms both private and government. The split roads are sometimes better because the geometry of the facility makes that occur.

There is a good debate, here highlighted by AndyPoms' steadfast belief in all-private roads, which I only agree with for small private installations like small private communities -- so due to AndyPoms and others, I included that in the proposed approach at the thread above. I much rather favor a couple private segments at each entry/exit point (or the split road approach) because it has so many more benefits. The benefits increase with installation size. There could be serious issues with all-private roads too (as hinted at a few messages ago speculating about penalties going from private to non-private roads). I am running a series of test on such a facility I go into every day for work (creating a proving ground).

I think that the local editor should have some latitude to approach this as needed, but we ought to provide guidance.
