Hi. I would like to know if you could take care of this "issue". Many streets in this permalink are locked by some "abusive" user, which is Level 3 editor (called LouisPR). Though, the streets are incomplete, no names, and wrong driving directions... I am trying to change driving directions and/or adding roads but it is impossible for me. Thanks a lot whit any help about this. Thanks!!

Hello gang. I am a level 3 editor on the island.

1- Yes, I do have the same Freeway versus Highway questions. I recently started changing portions of PR-1 to be minor highway, while other portions are still primary street. Example, when PR-1 gets to the center of Caguas it becomes a very small street... while not even being the main street for this town.
Same thing with PR-30 (not sure if it should be labeled as a Freeway or as a Mayor or Minor Highway. See, PR-1 does have traffic lights throughout... PR-30 does not. Both will cross between towns of course, but you can't leave the island through them (as an interstate would when crossing states).

2- Also, I see people now starting to mark neighborhoods (Urbanizacion) with the Landmark tool. It is annoying for the editor when we need to change street or add/edit other landmarks inside that huge landmark. But, it is a good tool for the traveler looking for specific neighborhoods by name.

See, our street names don't mean much since they are repeated over and over again in every single town. I lived in the states for 13 years and was used to finding streets easily since a street name with be unique per town. In Puerto Rico most neighborhoods will just have basic street names like Calle 1 and Calle 2 or Calle A and Calle B. This is repeated on every single town many many times. In my barrio I found many separate streets named after the original owner of the land... repeatedly. Gets annoying. So, we can't really ask the system to show me directions to a street name. So we depend more on neighborhood names or landmarks. I can ask Waze to take me to a school by name, and if someone has landmarked that school I will find my way.

3- As a traveller that needed to visit many unknown schools throughout the island at one point, I became obsessed with finding a school using a given address. You see, the actual address in most cases was for a primary street that would cross the whole island from north to west. A house or building is not assigned an actual house address, but it is identified first by the kilometer and hectometer where that land is located within a street. So a school with the address of PR-789 Km 34.6 would make me take out Google Maps and measure kilometers from the starting point of that street to see where Km 34.6 would be located. This would take a lot of time, but at least I was almost always able to find a street.

Now, if Waze could have those measurements done, or some way to have flags or map points for the kilometers of different landmarks, it would help the traveler a big deal.

And to the other map editors who are not level 2 or 3 yet but have put many hours to the cause, you can request an upgrade if you have plenty of map editing credits. I used to be at level 1 just a few months ago.

Looks like you have been updated to a level 3 editor yourself now. Do you still need assistance with any locks?

Hi... I have some time editing and trying to get a great looking maps for my areas in Puerto Rico. The actual problem that i'm having now is that i'm getting a lot of street randomly locked by a user "amoulier". I just start to update some highway like PR-30 and try to divide the directions in two separate street and I end closing the whole street cause there is a L3 lock that cause that my edit lock the turn directions. is there a way that anyone can downgrade all those ramdom locks on the PR-30, PR-60 and PR-204?

the whole PR-204 also have some ramdom locks

If possible... I work in this industries and they are wrong named... again with a L3 lock... I want to rename them. They correct names are "McNeil Healtcare LLC" for https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... rks=795517

and McNeil 3 for https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... rks=795519


thanks a lot!

As of today, I have become the new Regional Coordinator for Puerto Rico. I will post something later tonight (when I have more time). I will also address your road unlocks later tonight. I'm firing this off as I have one foot out of the door. I should be back home around 8pm EST and have no problem with unlocking roads, unless someone beats me to them. I'm also looking for area managers, as there are none on the island.
Just wazeting my time to help you waze your route smoothly.

Just this once, they've been painstakingly unlocked. You can use the "select whole street" tab and select multiple segments to be unlocked instead of one at a time. It makes it easier for you and for anyone who's unlocking them.

Greeting to all,

I found this section of a ramp locked by a "staff" member. Every month I see someone reporting a problem on that intersection, but it can't be fixed because of this lock.

Can someone from the Waze staff take care of this, please?

Thanks in advance.
