This segment hasn't been updated since March 2012, which would be the most recent date it could have been set incorrectly and allowed traffic the other way. Now, true enough, Waze does route against 1-way segments, but there would need to have been significant other errors nearby to cause this.

Could it also be, that this segment was a victim of the automatic "turn this 2-way road into 1-way because nobody seems to be driving it" change? Recently, at least long after edited.

And its still using ancient outdated data, and I'm pretty sure most of these were flagged the last time around and marked as solved.

What a waste of time and resources. Waze must be trying to spike the volume of "solved" problems's to show high levels of activity to their VC.

I'm almost ready to throw in the towel and tell Waze to F off.

A lot of them are "Turn Problem: The displayed route is frequently not taken by users"

Yes, but it's a different "sea of orange" problem... See viewtopic.php?f=8&t=37502

I think it was done by Waze to relieve the conflict when both municipalities had the same name on import of basemap.

We have the "Greater XXXXX Area" names on the map all over my central NJ area as well. What's worse is their polygons are less accurate than both municipal boundaries and zip code boundaries! I've never seen maps of NJ described like this anywhere, ever, so I'm guessing these came from the initial base maps used to create the database, or some rule somewhere to fill in the gaps where the correct information wasn't available.

No wonder New Jersey is the butt of so many jokes.

I'm guessing that is how the areas were label in the census/tiger data used as the base map.

In large swarths of MA, we have "Greater Hopkington Area", "Greater Northborough Area", "Greater Westborough Area", and then also plain-ole "Hopkington", "Northborough", and "Westborough". This is a sea of orange mess just waiting to happen.

Does anyone know how it got to be this way? Is it historical or hysterical?
