Captnkeegs - It looks to me like the v13 Kent Co. map follows this color scheme as well. Is it possible that you have an old link?

The main urban areas of Kalamazoo are virtually complete (with some small exceptions).

Also, the SE side of Grand Rapids is also complete as far as I can take it.

I understand that the Waze instructions are wrong, and I'm not trying to say they are correct. But I still think an 8 lane highway and a 2 lane road should not be the same classification. And while a 2 lane highway might indeed be the only or primary thoroughfare through an entire region, the example I provided is not. It's simply a 2 lane street through a suburban residential area, with other streets exactly like it 1 mile away on either side.

Interesting thread. I just joined and found the wiki instructions on this, and began making edits in my area. Davielde emailed me and pointed me here (thank you).

While I understand the desire to follow a standard format (NFC) for these road identifications, I am definitely confused by the NFC classification in some cases. Example: Maple Road in Oakland County is, for long stretches, a single lane road (in each direction). This, under the NFC, is marked "Other Principal Arterial" which seems to be translating to "Major Highway", but under the Waze instructions it would be "Primary Street". Major Highway is the same classification given to M-5 (a divided highway with 4 lanes in each direction) and Woodward (another divided road with 3-4 lanes in each direction). Classifying these roads the same does not seem to make sense, regardless of what the NFC says.

Emailed him yesterday, no response. We'll see.

Riamus wrote:I'm not sure which roads were changed, but I do see some Minor Highways that were edited by sketch today. Maybe those are the ones you meant? I looked at the NFC and those all seem to be green roads in the NFC. Green would be Minor Highways unless there is a reason to upgrade them to Major. It could also be that the ones that were changed are already changed back.


Yup, sketch changed most of 'em back today. I've started working on Lansing in the meantime.
