Yeah, at first it will do either 66 or 123 to the GW Parkway to the 14th st bridge (395), then I'll be halfway to the Toll Plaza and it'll reroute me via 495S to 395N.

My guess is that the bit between the Toll Plaza and 66 starts backing up and backs up past the entrance to 123 and then Waze reroutes me.

I run into a similar issue. I commute to McLean and Ashburn from Arlington, and usually the fastest route recommended (with Avoid Tolls = OFF) is 495 Express Lanes. I know from experience that one of the faster toll-free ways is to take 50W to 495N (non-express) but when I tell Waze to look for alternate routes, it doesn't ever offer the non-express route on 495.
