Dumb map delay refresh problem.... Make sure you lock the segment, delete the I-495 junction and lock that segment of 495 too. He's only a Lvl 0 so that should prevent that particular user from reconnecting it.

Someone needs to clean up some Update Requests in Virginia

Manorbe(6) reconnected it. I really wish we could annotate the edit map to explain why changes have been made.

I've gone ahead and disconnected it again based on the following from Manor:

Hi carl,
The ramp was reconnected because of a reoccurring navigation problem.
according to the gps points there was movment on that ramp in the past few weeks, in addition users navigated through that ramp (thus creating the navigation problems), so based on that information the ramp should be connected.

we are not aware of any construction work on that ramp nor do we check for these type of things, we rely on waze users to update the map because they
pretty much knows what's best.

if the ramp is closed for any reason feel free to disconnect it again, i will make sure that we wont reconnect it again.

Kind Regards,
Manor.

Which is why, when you see a high-ranking editor has disconnected it and even locked it, YOU SHOULD NOT TOUCH IT!

GPS points in the last few weeks my ass.

Maybe members of the construction crew are running Waze ;)

That's not so far fetched. I know for a fact there's at least one or two working new overpasses and interchanges out here in Denver. Multiple GPS tracks through major construction sights for instance.

Hi,

It's little ol' me, the originator of all this hullaballoo. I just drove through the area in question again, and, yes, the left exit ramp to westbound I-66 is still closed.

That interchange has always been a little strange, with a single right side exit to eastbound I-66 and ~2~ exits, one left side and one right side, to westbound I-66. And trying to keep track of where all the exits to all of the interchanges on I-495 in Virginia with all the construction is mind boggling!! If I could actually see a set of plans, I could probably keep track (before I got laid off I used to design roads and storm drain systems).

Anyway, I want to thank everyone who's kept up with all the back and forth on this. It's good to know that there are actually people who do care about making sure the system works as best as it can.

Thanks for the confirmation. We'll see if we can keep it disconnected.

Being on the other side of DC I really can't keep track of all the construction in Virginia.
