Roundabout that Ate an Intersection

Postby TruckOttr » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:52 pm

I saw this today and was about to fix it, but noticed that it was recently updated by homer(staff). Not sure what's going on here.

Yup, I saw that huge roundabout in the Waze map editor too. Seems way too big when compared to the drawing in this article and the photos in this one.

But I must admit, I live in Manteca and haven't been to the location of the new roundabout yet.

In any case, I think the newly added roundabout is probably too big and will need to be unlocked for editing.

Leave it alone for now. I sent the permalink and screen capture to one of the higher-ups who will look into it.

There's a roundabout there. But it's not that big. There are also a few oddities down the road from the giant roundabout, a couple of street fragments labeled "Does Not Exist Now".

Where are these? I don't see them.

They're easy to miss.

The roundabout is brand new so the aerial image is out of date, but it didn't eat houses.

If you look at the GPS tracks, they seem to match the new layout of the roundabout that was in the article. Especially the east bound bends like it does in the article.

I have gone ahead and requested an aerial image update for the roundabout location.

Go ahead and fix the roundabout. Homer saw it and compulsively removed a few stray junction nodes,
which is why his name is on it, but left it for the community to manage. He also felt that it was obviously too big.
