It's been pretty quiet out there lately. Anything new? I haven't seen any update requests or pending items.

Hey twolfe,

I fixed that backwards segment. I'll check the rest of that area, lots of on/off ramps to go through (they're also starting construction around there again so I gotta keep a watch on it)

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 Those are outdated.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.

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The issue is the aerial maps are out of date.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?


Yea, i last looked at this mess a few months ago. I had just avoided it for these reasons though this pdf will really help us ultimately line up roads with GPS. I thought i might drive drive all of the new roads and just look at my GPS tracks to line up the roads (when i have some free time). I got a Nexus One and from what i've heard and experienced with this so far i haven't jumped around on the map b/c the GPS couldnt figure out where i was like i experienced on my iphone.

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
Ted
