In https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Ju ... ent_naming in the part about naming segments from BGS with "to" written on the sign, the examples should be switched to read:

If any included control cities or road names correlate only to the roads affected by the "TO", then those control cities or road names should be moved after the "/ to [road(s)] /" on the segment name.

If Morristown is served by I-280 and not by I-80, the continuation segment should be "I-80 / to I-280 / Morristown".

If any included control cities or road names correlate to the roads not affected by the "TO", then those control cities or road names should remain in place before "/ to [road(s)]".

If Morristown is served by I-80, the continuation segment should be named "I-80 / Morristown / to I-280".

I have made the above correction by switching the examples.

For the wayfinder section, could we update the two left exit scenarios to include the use TIOs?

(Well really, the entire article at this point should also reference TIOs where appropriate.)

Can I propose an addition to [i]modified use of unnamed ramps[i] here?

Another example of modified use of unnamed ramps:
In this example, there are multiple lanes for the exit, and the signage at the initial exit has been visually sectioned to indicate the correct lane. As well, the exit number for both forks are identical/equal on the initial exit ramp, and not indicated on subsequent forks.

Initial Exit Signs: Exit 70: I-99 to City A and Exit 70: I-99 to City B, at the same fork
Destination Left Sign: I-99 N to City A
Destination Right Sign: I-99 S to City B
Destination Left name in Waze: Exit 70: I-99 N / City A
Destination Right name in Waze: Exit 70: I-99 S / City B

Result: Again, by using a modified name for the destination ramps, we have combined information from two sets of signs to generate the advance notice a driver may need to prepare for a decision point.

As discussed in the global forum we have built consensus for some changes to the JSG/interchanges page over a year ago, and are yet to have any movement on the global front for approval. I will therefore make a USA version of the page with these changes incorporated.
You can see the discussions on this page here, and specifically on diamond interchanges here.

If you have any comments or alternate suggestions please respond now.

Those are great ideas, but at this point they should be part of a new effort to discuss and update and not be used to hold back making changes which were already agreed to. By all means feel free to discuss improvements, and how the page can link up with the TIO page, but I will not wait for that discussion to make this current update.

I have now made the USA local variant incorporating the draft by CBenson. However I did not include any change changes which were meant to globalize the content as this is now a US specific page. Any future discussion about updates to the content (and we need to discuss revamping and merging the Wayfinder section with TIOs) should happen in the USA wiki forum thread.
