Washington Doesn't meet the requirements to be split. I've unsplit it - please check all turn restrictions in that area.

Also, it wasn't locked, so you could have made the changes if you felt so inclined.

Restricted.

Thanks for the catch...

I hate time based restrictions... They can easily be reset if needed as the area hasn't been locked (even before I got my hands on it).

I was thinking about that one, but the offset is significant & I think it would be hard to make them match up and not cause other MPs in the area...

I'm not sure I see any advantage to having Washington St split through town. So one option would be to make it one two-way road. Another option is to push the split off the intersection with Wilkes St.

Waze icon tells me to turn right instead of stay straight

Postby jentdrive » Tue Jan 08, 2013 8:55 pm

When driving straight, as indicated in the screenshot, the road changes names and splits into two one-way streets with a divider between them instead of a traditional road with no divider.

Because of this, Waze incorrectly displays an icon telling me to turn right, when the correct behavior should be to tell me to continue straight onto the new street name (or not tell me anything at all).

How can I fix this? Thanks!
