Issue at I-20 & State Hwy 19 in Canton, TX

Postby karlcr9911 » Wed Apr 09, 2014 3:58 pm

I have seen a rash of UR at this intersection https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-95.85489&lat=32.57698&zoom=3&layers=1957&env=usa going on two months now and routinely, folks are stating that Waze is providing the following directions to drivers:

When heading southbound on Hwy 19, north of I-20, users are given directions to turn eastbound on I-20 to then go down to FM 17 and turn around and then head westbound on I-20, which was the original, intended direction of travel.

There should be no reason that I can find for these directions. I can see in 'Live Map' that it offers this route between 430pm-5pm roughly but this is a low traffic area and all that is needed is one right turn at the light at I-20 & Hwy 19 to proceed to the on-ramp to WB I-20. I can't possibly imagine that heading east for several miles and then making a u-turn over FM 17 and back westbound is quicker/faster.

As I mentioned above, the time period later in the day is when this appears for me in Live Map and I just reproduced the only route, when north of Hwy 19 with a destination west of the I-20 intersection, instructs you to go east to turn around at FM 17 to then turn west.

Here is a link to the routes I just produced (change the time to 1630-1700 range: https://www.waze.com/livemap?zoom=13&lat=32.61369&lon=-95.93554&from_lat=32.61436&from_lon=-95.84936&to_lat=32.62781&to_lon=-96.00746

See how this looks to you and see if you can help figure out why or help get it corrected. Thank you!

I ran a few tests through 'live map' and I cannot duplicate the issue being reported. The routes produced all lead me WB.
