When I looked around, I still noticed stay sections and one segment is still one way. https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-81.43 ... s=67020365

Also in that view I noticed the roundabouts that should not be there...

Actually, you have two more steps:

    1. Add the city & street names to the red segments (they will turn white when you save); and
    2. Delete the four junctions on each side of the intersection, to make the short segments part of the longer segments on each side. (This will work only when the state/city/street name/type/direction etc. of the two segments match.)

Was told to fix some issues. I did it and was asking if the intersection is properly set now. :)

Thank your for your reply.

Looks good to me. I was just looking at the intersection in the permalink. So simple now.

There are still two stray segments - https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-81.43 ... s=66794992
and the other is further southeast (on the same road - Flora Blvd)

Also while you are in the area, the roundabouts at the end of the streets should not be there. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Crea ... _dead-ends

Indeed. Nothing like the "before" picture! (We should have taken a screen shot for posterity.)

These circles are small enough to be represented simply by extending the straight road segments across their centers.

Ok, I really hope there is no problem now. :) I learned several interesting things thanks to the help I got from the people here. I do appreciate all the help I got from you all.

Thank you

I think I will still work the with easy fix for now. Once I get more experience I will deal with the hard ones. To bad there are so many roads that are split when one two way road will suffice.

Edited:

I did four roundabouts. It was a not easy for me. I got many errors when I was trying to save my work. I read the manual. After several attempts I was able to manage. Do you think I should do all of them in that neighborhood or leave it as is?

Some other spots in that area that could use your attention:

* This parking lot is badly in need of help. If you look carefully in the editor, you'll see that the outer one-way loop doesn't have a junction at the point where it ends and rejoins with the main road; so Waze thinks it's a dead end. And leaving aside the question of whether the smaller inner two-way loop should be mapped at all, it has the same problem.

* This segment has the same problem (it's not connected to the southbound road).

* This segment should connect with Dyer Blvd.

* And more substantively, ranging a bit farther out, it looks like there are still a few roads in the Waze map that are just flat-out mistakes -- leftovers from the basemap, which unfortunately contained lots of short nonexistent roads. This "road", for example, appears to be almost entirely a fantasy. When you see a dead-end road jutting off in an odd direction, check to see if it's an actual road (which you can quickly do by pressing Shift-R to turn off the Roads layer in Waze, letting you see the underlying streets better).
