Thanks for the information!

I have added the closure and after a few days things will be ready to start "construction" on the Waze side of things.

Thank you.

Due to the construction of the roundabout, the following sections of Orcutt Rd are 25mph at this time:

https://waze.com/en-US/editor?env=usa&l ... =514884838

https://waze.com/en-US/editor?env=usa&l ... s=63519052

https://waze.com/en-US/editor?env=usa&l ... =500409524

Side question:
With me making the recommendation of the changes, but somebody else making the change and earning the credits, how will one ever become a higher level map editor in Waze?

Thanks,
Wolfgang

There are some edits that are restricted by rank, or easier for a senior editor to handle.

The segments listed above are unlocked so you can adjust speed limits.

Hello -

I was hoping to add some additional speed restrictions and alter the path slightly and remove the turn capability into the park, but it appears I do not have the permission to do anything, which likely will stop my interest in assisting Waze to get things right as I have to do tripple the work and get no credits for it anyways.

So here is the real world scenario for the next 3 months:


Areal image of what - WAS - an intersection on Sept 16, 2021:
There are concrete blocks on both sides of the road removing this intersection and making it de-facto a narrow 20mph restricted ( Signs ! ) road. There is no turn off allowed into the park. Orcutt Rd is now a road without intersection (Temporarily until Dec).

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM ... authuser=0


Here's how I'd structure it: Make it a 20mph curved road as it is in real world and have the 25mph before and after the curved section. No turn into the park. 

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM ... authuser=0


If you want to update the map, great, if you don't, I'm fine with it too.

Thanks.

You are welcome to disconnect the parking lot road and the section of Tank Farm.

The other segments are also downlocked so you can adjust geometry. A question on this, though. If you were driving this, would you expect a turn prompt?

Also, the editing community in California is available in fairly real time via Discord. Please join us there and we can help you much better than through the forums.

At this time, there is no turn possible at all and if I am informed correctly, then this will be the case until December or January the soonest. Traveling on Orcutt Rd allows for a turn on Spanish Oaks Dr as well as Hansen Ln and nothing in between (other than a couple of private driveways).

I mean going from Orcutt to Tank Farm (traveling southwest) or the opposite, would you expect a turn prompt from Orcutt to Tank Farm?
