Looking for advice on U-turns

Postby HeyRobb » Sun Nov 25, 2012 5:20 pm

Hey all,

I've been glancing through user guides/wikis on managing U-turns and am unable to locate exactly how to handle this issue. Here is an example of what I'm trying to help solve:

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... 7,67078179

Between these segments, a U-turn is permitted. But there are also permitted U-turns all along 441/SR-7 in both North and South directions. The easiest 'solution' (although I don't bellieve it would be) would be to add a one-way road between these segments from north-to-south.

I don't believe it would be appropriate for Wazers to see a bunch of small road segments along their route (u-turn permitted areas), but I don't know how to help solve this issue.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

Doesn't the unnamed road already allow u-turns from Southern Blvd Eastbound to Westbound (and vice versa)?

My apologies, I included the wrong Permalink in my original post. I updated the Permalink in my original post as well as included it here.

Well, that certainly is a different situation. Coming from an area where drivers have trouble handling two turn lanes in the same direction, that intersection terrifies me. ;)

If you are looking for a way to add the ability to make a u-turn without adding more to the confusion, you could add nodes that form an intersection with south lane of Southern Blvd ramp and then set the section of Southern Blvd ramp between 441 to two way and allow the turn from 441 nb to Southern wb to 441 sb. That should give the same effect as adding an additional one-way lane going against the flow of traffic.

I appreciate the help, but that confused the you-know-what outta me. I took a look at the intersection and tried to apply what you were suggesting. Unfortunately, I think I'm applying what your saying to the wrong segments. If there is any way you can clarify which segments I can make the appropriate changes to, I would appreciate it. Still pretty new to this stuff, and I have a tendency to over complicate things a great deal. Just don't want to make incorrect changes to the maps.

Thanks for all of your help!

I'll give it a shot

1.) I added temporary roads to get nodes

2.) Deleted the temporary roads, leaving the nodes behind

3.) Moved nodes to the point of intersections of the roads
Image

4.) Set segment of Southern Blvd Ramp between the nodes to two way
Image

5.) Enable turn from NB US-441/FL-7 onto two way segment
Image

6.) Enable turn from two way segment onto SB US-441/FL-7

Segments that make up the U-Turn selected

As The Grinch would say... BRILLIANT! lol

Thank you very much for the help here and for taking the time to explain it to me. I implemented exactly what you suggested, and will keep an eye on it for further issues.

Thanks again for helping me see a little deeper into how a fix can be implemented without adding confusion.

One other thing, if you or another contributor wouldn't mind helping me solve it:

https://www.waze.com/editor/#?zoom=8&la ... TTTFTTTTFT

Here lies another popular issue with Wazers initiating a legal u-turn but flagging a 'Missing road' problem.

Any suggestions?

I think you might have posted the wrong URL, that is the area of the first problem, but no segments selected.

Sorry about that:

https://www.waze.com/editor/#?%23%3F=&z ... s=67128471

It's the system error/u-turn area just south-west of the 'B' end of the highlighted segment. Thanks again.
