Thank lemon. Keep an eye out for a new user blog post. I submitted it last night. Took to heart you comment that we are ahead of the curve. Thought the user blog was a good way to get the info out.

Hey Oscar. Was traveling south west on 494 heading towards Highway 61/point douglas drive and the navigation wanted me to exit to 61 and back on 494 again. I see a road segment that road segment right after bailey rd crosses is pointing backwards. Tried to change but don't have permissions.
Not sure if there are other issues.

35W Crosstown - Initial run at fixing

http://www.waze.com/cartouche/?id=24990 ... FTFFFTTTTT

OK. Yes it is 2:21 in the morning and I am hitting the sack. Take a look. Feedback appreciated. I changed crosstown to Major Highway vs Freeway after reading the road naming conventions in the Wiki. Thats why the road is now red.

I have modified the freeways and ramps and crosstown based on two things. First the DOT maps for the construction.
http://www.dot.state.mn.us/projects/cro ... osures.pdf

Second, the GPS points as arrows. IF you zoom in, you get a pretty good model for the flow.

Caution: The new roads will NOT match the aerial views. Those are outdated.

Lastly, I have LOCKED all the new segments and have labelled them with a suffix of CONST ZN. Since no one else seemed to have addressed that kind of naming, I added it to the general naming wiki entry.


===Basic Rules===

Start by following the naming rules for your major roads. Interstate as "I- 10".
US highways as "US Hwy 90". To show that the segments are part of a construction zone, just add the suffix "CONST ZN". "I- 10" becomes "I- 10 CONST ZN".
"US Hwy 90" becomes "US Hwy 90 CONST ZN".

When temporarily re-setting road geometry, closely monitor recent GPS points as the aerial maps will likely display an out-dated view. Also, be sure to closely monitor these sections of roadway and remove the CONST ZN suffix whenever the construction is done.

Lemon: Got another tangle. I was driving from roseville to mpls on 36 to 35w and had some minor issues. But started looking North of the Cleveland, 36, I 35 intersections and found this one.

http://www.waze.com/cartouche/?zoom=6&l ... FTFFFTTTTT

I tried to fix but don't have permissions. Maybe I will in a couple days but have travelled 36 before and thought I'd be within a mile.

If you think it would help, I'd be happy to see if Waze would extend my manager privs to this area too.

Cheers

I 35 W ROAD CONSTRUCTION SOUTH OF 94.

Hey Lemon. This is a follow up to my earlier post on this,

I think you and I are area managers for this tough piece of real estate.
The issue is the aerial maps are out of date. You can see this when you turn on 'recent gps points'.
It will take a lot of work to clean it up 'blind'. But as a major freeway, folks will be getting pretty frustrated if it stays in current condition. Based on info I can find the project will not be completed until 12/2010.

I also worry about fixing it and then having a newbie wazer go changing the road layout. I suppose if we do it pretty well, they at least won't be able to delete the roads we set up, they'll just move them and we can change them back. Do you think we could temporarily label them '135 const zone pls don't change'

I was scanning the web and found a couple map PDFs from the DOT that show the final layout and even the status of work as of Feb 2010.

http://www.dot.state.mn.us/projects/cro ... osures.pdf

Here's a screen capture

I'd propose whoever does this should set up the current map as best we can to match the future layout, using recent GPS points and the DOT map to get the roads 'close'.

Your thoughts Lemon?

Hi got an odd one. I have Restricted Turns on and Connectivity checked.
I can't figure out how to fix it. The connectivity shows that waze thinks the north south roads are linked?? And there are turn issues up the ying / yang, probably caused by the poor connectivity?

I thought perhaps one could just delete the bad roads and then re add them but I doubt I have permissions in the midway.

Hi Lemon:
I was doing some clean up around south mpls last night and ran into something really odd.
Take a close in look at 35W going south (and North) between the 62 cross town and I-94.

It's weird. Going North, there was some odd stuff that used to take you off an off ramp and back one again but the segement of 35W between the two ramps was missing. I drew in a road to try to connect things up but it probably is still not right.

Also going south we've got TWO roads that are suppose to be 35W. I was nervous about removing one of them so I left them. What do you thing we should do the correct that problem.

I do that the 35w south route home and I noted that waze seemed to get very confused about where I was (ie which road I was on) as the travel that segment. I assume we want it to be one road going south (since I don't think waze can handle modelling a 4 lane freeway just yet).

Appreciate your thoughts.
