So.....how'd it work out, or has it gone live, yet?

Uh...oh. If that's the case, then there are some things in Texas that are going to be all jacked up, cuz I haven't finished them. :)

Good job txemt. I was driving around the area today. It looks like your fix went live(?) this morning and Waze directed me to the correct ramp.

That's what I'm thinking.

I missed the "eastbound" part. Sounds like Waze decided to route through the turn-restriction. Your fix should do the trick.

I think the Wiki rules on the HOV lane are more for the HOV lanes on the freeway, not the ramps. I made a small change, see if that works.

Ah, I hadn't read enough of the thread to see that's what the real problem was. Your rerouting of the ramp going through the intersection should definitely prevent further left turn instructions. From my reading of the wiki, the hov lane should be changed to a parking lot type to help prevent waze from routing on it. By keeping the hov lane but making it unlikely to be routed, we can prevent "missing road" problems and give waze a good start point for rerouting when somebody uses the hov lane.

That's not where the problem is, though (that link just goes to strengthen my point). The problem is at the intersection further back where the driver is supposed to make a right onto the ramp to get onto I-15, but Waze is instructing the driver to make a left.

That is correct. But the turn restrictions for the ramp are both turn off (which doesn't mean Waze won't direct someone to turn there). My question is why have that one ramp there? It serves no purpose for Waze (and I'm not seeing a legal separate purpose for a driver). If I were a driver getting onto I-15 from that road, I would have made my right turn onto the first ramp, regardless if I have 20 people in my car or it's just me. I wouldn't pass up the first ramp just so I can take the 2nd ramp because it's a HOV onramp, they both lead to the same place. They're connected a few feet down the road. That's why I'm asking what is the logical purpose of that ramp?

So the point is that at the end of the onramp there's a set of traffic lights controlling access to the freeway. Cars aren't allowed to switch lanes on the ramp so if there's less HOVs than normal cars you end up closer to the traffic lights. Additionally there may be some logic in the lights that lets in more HOV traffic than normal traffic.
