I have no clue. I was troubleshooting a route in Los Angeles yesterday and the route changed a couple of times over a period of about 10 minutes, but the road was turning red, indicating a traffic pileup.

Either that, or the map update has begun and that particular tile was updating while you were playing with it. But in that case, it wouldn't have switched back.

The only other thing I can suggest is that it was marked as a no-left-turn and at some point in the last...what? 40 days?...since we had a map update, someone else fixed it.

Traffic avoidance?

Not getting that behavior with the permalink right now though.

It would be valuable if Waze could find these and identify them as a Map Problem in WME. Much more value to identify this type of problem than a missing road in a Parking Lot or Gas Station...

I'm still getting URs at this intersection that complain about being given right/U instructions rather than a left and right/U/right instructions rather than going straight through.

Upon further thought about this, I believe that there may be a fundamental problem with the waze calculations. First I understand that there is a possibility that the right/U might be on average faster than the left (this is an intersection with its own left turn signal). However, I do not believe that the right/U/right is actually on average faster than going straight through the intersection. It is my understanding that waze does rely on different time data depending on which way you are turning. But, I'm not convinced that this works when entering/crossing a split highway, this is because both left turns and cross-traffic have their delay on the segment prior to the highway. Then both left turns and cross-traffic proceed to the cross-segment. Thus, I'm guessing that waze does not distinguish between left turn traffic and cross traffic when determining the average time that you wait at the light.

Its not happening for me now either. Does seem to be based on the time slice data. I'll see what happens if I ask support about this one.

I have a hard time believing that the route is actually faster.

Sounds good. I just haven't seen them in orange yet.

I just figured something had to be amiss with that junction so I pulled it apart (without saving it) and there it was.

I'm now finding little things like this a bunch of places where weird routing has been reported. That being said, I'm still not sure how you found this one. When I pull apart a junction without saving, the roads don't change - the orange lines just show the proposed changes until I save. I haven't figured out how to find things like this without tearing apart and saving.
