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?

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.

How do they turn off the street if there isn't a parking lot? If there is, then the proper way to be routed is from the other direction and that can be easily accomplished with turn restrictions.

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 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
