For the second example, I just mark them not identified (you may wish to mark them solved if you avoid not identified). Waze can route the U if it is appropriate without the added segment, so I don't see the necessity to add the segment.

I believe that is correct, that you will not get an announcement when traveling northbound. However, I believe that the only thing naming the segment will achieve is to have the "select entire street" function pick up this segment as well (although I'm assuming the segment is over 15m long).

So rather than adding segments, would it instead be best to mark those Missing Road reports as not identified or solved?

So it sounds like not resolved is better since it wasn't really actually solved...

Doesn't the system have issues if you mark a problem as solved when it can keep happening in the future?

Could use some advice myself. Simple U-turns are setting off a missing road alert. Here's one example:

https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-117.5 ... TTTTTTTTFT

I just added a left turn lane.

Here is another example which does not have an actual left turn lane:

https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-118.0 ... TTTTTTTTFT

I added an "H" connector to allow Waze to route legal U-turns there.

Is there another preferred way of dealing with "missing road" errors that are a result of legal U-turns?

I assume you would use the same type as you would for an "at grade connector" which is the lesser of the two roads it connects. In this case, Minor Highway. Using a type street would add penalties for crossing type from Minor Highway to Street and then back.

I don't see any reason to not do a simple u-turn lane for this one. (Unless of course the AM's and CM's have a problem with it). The only thing I would suggest is, despite the real world u-turn lane starting back near the prior intersection, keep the u-turn lane's length to a minimum so that it doesn't confuse things visually.

Not only does this function as a u-turn, but is also visually says "hey I'm a u-turn" for anyone who is not routed through the turn.

I think you might have posted the wrong URL, that is the area of the first problem, but no segments selected.
