If there is a road name for a CR-656 such as "Smith St", it should be just "Smith St" and CR-656 can put as an alternative name.

Is this also true for the State routes? such as State Rte 35?
Can this be named as "State Rte 35" and the other name would be put in as alternative name?

Thanks

One name should be the primary name and the other name should be an alternate name. Do not combine them together.

That said, which name gets to be primary and which gets to be an alternate depends on a case by case basis. It will depend on:
- What do the locals call it?
- What do others call it?
- What do any BGS say?
- What do any signs at individual intersections say?

Again, it will be a case by case basis.

Take a look around other parts of NY state to see what standard they have gone with or look in the New York forum under the US sub-forum.

So I've finally been able to spend more than 10 minutes or less a day with Waze lately and I am slowly catching up on reading the forums. I am so glad to see that this thread is functioning quite well to address the miscellaneous issues found in NJ without me :)

RE: roads with the route number appended to the common name -- I noticed that on my own a few days ago and I've been talking to the editor responsible. He means well and knows that it will have to be undone in the future. I am personally concerned about setting a bad example for new editors. PMs are still on-going...

RE: Rte 17, I'm still going along 4 (mostly at and west of 17, some of which you already touched). I'm cleaning up things in general besides any recent damage, so a second set of eyes would be welcome ;)

And our newbie who started this discussion replied to my PM and it seems like honest newbie mistakes and I think he has been set straight.

I'll leave 156 for Jon since he's had experience there.


155 had an incorrect junction UR without specifying anything. The way the ramp was created/locked doesn't look too idea. I would have thought something more in line with the way Google drew it. I was wondering if you think we should update it or leave it be.

The other way a certain other map site shows it does seem to be better -- traffic from 2nd Ave lines up better and the turn instruction would be more timely from 59th St. I just made the changes. Take a look and let me know if I missed anything.

Heck, all of the segments on portions of 17 are now disallowed!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Names are wrong, everything is screwed up. I don't have time to fix this all....

Wow, they did make a mess. :(

As we just discussed, I'll PM them also and help you clean up the damage. Sigh.

153.) I'm not a huge fan of a ramp-type name being on a Street type segment, but I'll leave that for another discussion. Having the correct name is the most important thing. So now all of these segments have the same, consistent, accurate name.

154.) Yep, looks like you are correct. May have been copy and paste error on my part or I didn't notice the incorrect number. Near there, do we really want to have a u-turn here? If not, the ramp should just bridge across SB Madison so there is no way to turn.

Above is the path I take going home. It should say to keep-lefts 2 times, but I only got one when I went home. I think the second 'left' isn't 'left' enough and it thinks it is straight and therefore doesn't say anything. The segment needs to be angled more, along with the other 'right' segment.

Sorry about that. It wasn't angles. This segment was named and the one leading into it and the left hand branch were both un-named. Therefore unless it was a 90 degree turn to take the left hand branch, the left hand branch would always be considered the best continuation and receive no announcement.

I made the short Major Hwy stub for the right hand exit un-named so now all choices are "equal" and will receive an announcement.

Explaination is I am only human :oops:

Oh, and reading further it seems that CBenson knew the solution but lock levels kept him out. Anyway, it should be fixed now.

And I will get to the other issues you raised and hopefully start catching up in the forums in general. It was a busy holiday and we were without a baby sitter until today (last one got a "real" job) so I haven't had much time for Waze in a few weeks.

Okay, back to Canal Street. Map problems and/or update requests have been drawing random editors to this intersection like flies. In the last 24 hours many people have made changes. mdqueenz was the latest and I actually like what they did.

Headed south-east on Canal you will be told to keep right to the "stub" for Watts. This is helpful since only the right most lane out of 3 is for through traffic at that point. So this makes the "stub" more functional and hopefully more obvious in its purpose.

I've locked the road segments there to at least limit churn. If there are map problems popping up from a previous edit, it will be a few days until these changes go live and stop them. And some editors may not notice that the road was already edited since the last map tile build.
