This is called an At-Grade Connector and has it's own wiki page for guidance: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/At-Grade_Connectors.

Note the section about restricting the primary intersection right turn, otherwise Waze will still route people straight, too.

Which road name do I use?

Postby chrisfromnj » Sun Jan 06, 2013 2:31 am

Hi,

I just added a new one-way road -- it's one of those roads that split right before an intersection so one can more easily make a right turn. However, I'm not sure what name I'm supposed to give it. Do I give it the name of the road that you are currently on, or do I use the name of the road that you'll be turning on to. I used the name of the road that you're currently on, but not sure if I did it correctly. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Turn lanes like these are best kept nameless. If you really want to name them, IMHO you should name it like the road it goes to.
