Question regarding an address across a median in Fairfax VA

Postby mysticcobra » Wed May 15, 2013 5:27 pm

I was going to the gas station at this intersection (NW corner of Blake and Lee Hwy) and waze told me to go up Lee Hwy from the SW and turn left across a raised median into the gas station. I know you can't do that so I come up Pickett from the SE and turn left onto Lee and then right into the gas station.

My question: Does this need to be fixed per waze standards or is it correct as is (driver is on his/her own)? Does waze often tell drivers to turn across a median into a business? Seems like this would be a common problem.
thanks

IMO, I think Lee may need to be split, but I don't know if that will fix the main issue or not. Waze may still tell you to turn across the median. I'll get a couple of more people to look at it.

Put in a PLot road and restrict left turns in and out, and allow the u-turn at the next appropriate intersection so nav routes properly.

(I'm mobile and didn't even look at this specific situation.)

I considered putting in a parking lot road and restricting turns. U-turn is prohibited at the next intersection but that shouldn't deter the parking lot road solution. But what about every other business on this road and others with a median? Are these roads typically split when you can't physically cross a median to a business on the left?

Myself and orbtic have come to the conclusion Blake and Lee need to be split roads.

If there too many to make parking lot roads viable, then splitting the road is the only option at this time.

Why? And where?

Doesn't look like too many to me here. But that is a subjective call.

Ditto


They both have medians that prevent people from accessing businesses on either side of the street, as well as preventing turns onto/from side streets.

Now that I've gotten a look at this, I don't think it needs to be split either.
