Updates to Ayd Mill Rd in St. Paul

Postby tinfoilhattie » Sat Mar 31, 2018 5:29 am

If you're a Twin Cities local, odds are you're more than familiar with the "less-than-ideal" condition of some of our more major surface streets. Ayd Mill Rd in St. Paul is no exception, and its current condition has been the topic of much discussion on Discord recently. After a few direct conversations with a representative from the city of St. Paul, we've decided to downgrade the routing priority on the primary stretch of road from Selby Ave to I-35E:

https://www.waze.com/editor?env=usa&lon=-93.15220&lat=44.93843&zoom=4

What it Means for Routing
The road remains classified as mH, but the updated "Unfavored" routing preference means Waze should effectively treat this like a PS, considering other local PS equally in future routing considerations. Relevant segments have also been uplocked to 4 to prevent tampering.

When it Will be Updated
There is no official timeline for repairs, although we have been told it is on the to-do list for when the weather warms up (we're almost there!). Once improvements can be verified, we'll revisit any relevant edits and adjust as needed

P.S.
Thanks to the editors who raised the issue, and to our RC bretmcvey & local CCP partner CRYPWD for making introductions and facilitating the right conversations so we could be fully informed and ultimately make a decision that helps as many drivers as possible without risking major routing issues. It's all of working together like this that makes Waze so great!

Drop your questions & comments below. We'll keep this thread updated as construction progresses...

last i drove it, they had everything major patched. we can probably reset the routing till next spring, eh? obviously, a long term fix is gonna be a few years, but it should be fine to drive on now.

Thanks for the BOTG, commissar!

We'll reach out to our city contact and see if they'd like us to make the upgrade. Stay tuned!
