That is correct. The Private type segment applies a penalty and will not allow routing through the AFB so long as the destination address is not in located within the actual base. In this specific case there is another way in 247->Robbins Pkwy, which has no Private segments leading into the base, so Waze will choose that route over the penalized one. In order to correct the routing IN to the base, we need to make sure all applicable entrance points are typed Private as well. So making this segment a Private road, should fix this. See the Private Installations wiki for more details. You should also consider marking the gates with area places - eg. Military Personnel Only, Visitors Entrance etc.

First off, Im not sure when you made the edit to private but it would have had to have been prior to the tile update, which is what reflects the changes on the map. You can check the times of the update @ http://status.waze.com/. Keep in mind that by just changing the road type an update may not be triggered, so you may want to move a junction slightly to ensure you get the desired result when the next update comes around.

Making this slightly more complicated, the segment I recommended you change to private, seems to have been switched back to none private, bringing us back to square one.

My recommendation is to contact one of the local Area Managers via Private Message (go to your User Control Panel) like HuckD, burpee1282 or a Local Champ like spankdog and ask them to have the segment in question locked at a higher level, so it cant just be changed back. For military bases, level 6 is preferable. You should also show them the fork in the highway so they can look into the overlapping segment further.

You can also contact the other editor who last edited the segment by the base, explaining why it needs to be that way and pointing them to this thread. maybe there is an entirely separate routing issue that they are having and we would need to figure out a solution that works for everyone.

@HuckD - Yep, that is the editor I was referencing in my post. Thanks for reaching out to him.

I see txemt was actually the one to lock some of the other Private roads around this base to 6. "Enlisting" his help here is a good idea. In my limited experience with Military bases, due to the sensitivity of the destination, crucial segments around these installments are locked at the highest level possible.

Breeze ....and so it begins. Your first community, team-effort success story. Welcome aboard!

Its always important to check status.waze.com to ensure that the edits were propagated over to the main server. I would actually recommend subscribing to the site - click the follow button in the bottom right corner and enter your email - to receive (almost) daily emails as to when the tiles were last updated. The status report will also cover other important information, like when there is a delay in the server or scoreboard and the like.

I've actually been following that story when it first ran about a month ago. Good to hear the Today show was promoting Waze. The article you linked sums up it up perfectly. I-405 is a daily nightmare and drivers are always looking for a way around the freeway. The roads in question are not actually private; some folk found Waze and alas they have someone to point fingers at. Thankfully the reports they are submitting have zero effect on routing, so win-win. :D
