Chicago: Lakeshore vs 94

Postby trailblazer81 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 2:30 am

So I live on the south side of Chicago and commute to a north suburb everyday. Although it make not make the most sense, I can take Lakeshore and weave my way through Evanston to get to work or I can take 94 all the way up. The problem is that when 94 is really bad (which it normally is), taking Lakeshore is much faster although it's a lot of side roads. However, Waze will only route me halfway using Lakeshore, then have me cut over in the loop which is pointless. Anyone have any suggestions on getting better alternate route suggestions? I can provide more detail if needed, but was hoping one of my fellow Wazers in Chicago have figured this out.

Does it have you cut over on the same street every time? Or does it change?

Edit: I went north and south and deleted some extra nodes. Don't know if that will help that much, but it should help some.

As a start, in the editor, follow all along your expected route and look for missing connections, restricted turns, etc.
