Hi Wazers, my Waze ID is AndyW-8778 I've been using the Waze app for about 8 months, and WME for just over a month. I am native to Tucson and mostly drive around Oro Valley and the Catalina Foothills on the north side of Tucson. I've been making some edits on Oracle Rd since since the construction is nearly finished.

I'm anxious to learn as much as I can while I'm here in USA because most of the time I live and work in West Africa where there is a lot of mapping work yet to be done.

We follow the states FC - "Functional Classification" There is an official State GIS website that lists the FC of all the roads in AZ and we translate that to Waze standards and set our roads by it.

*Southbound I-17 restricted south of I-10 in Phoenix late Sunday night (Jan. 24) *

Consider using eastbound I-10 while pavement repairs are taking place

Southbound Interstate 17 will be narrowed to one lane between Jefferson Street and 19th Avenue from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday (Jan. 25) for overnight pavement repair work, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers who normally would use southbound I-17 in that area south of the Interstate 10 “Stack” interchange can consider using eastbound I-10 in the downtown Phoenix area as an alternate route.

Southbound I-17 on- and off-ramps in the area, including the southbound off-ramp at 19th Avenue/Durango Street, will be closed at times while the pavement repair work is taking place.

There are three reports ( one from DMCRandall himself ) that said that Waze told them to stay left instead of right.

Hi all - I'm an editor from IL, in Az for the week.  I noticed that Sahuaro Drive was named 114th Street here: https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-111.83304&lat=33.58394&layers=165&zoom=6&segments=75687513

I think this is an error, as 114th is the other side of Shea, and the street sign indicates Sahuaro.   Can anyone else do a check to verify before I make the change?

Thanks

Roundabout construction begins on SR 89 at Perkinsville Road in Chino Valley

A new roundabout is going to be built. Looks like we'll need to find the plans for that one as well and get ready for road layout changes as the construction continues.

US 60 east of Superior to close for blasting operations next week

Four-hour closure scheduled on Jan. 26 for passing-lane project


Motorists using US 60 between Phoenix and Globe next week should plan ahead and consider alternate routes as the Arizona Department of Transportation continues blasting work to build a passing lane and widen roadway shoulders east of Superior.

Construction of the two-mile-long climbing lane from Devil’s Canyon to Oak Flat (mileposts 231-233) will require three full closures, one lasting four hours and two lasting 90 minutes:

Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Thursday, Jan. 28, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Traffic on eastbound US 60 will be stopped east of Superior (milepost 227), and traffic on westbound US 60 will be stopped at the Top of the World, west of Miami (milepost 235), until the blasting work is completed and debris is cleared.

Approximately 30 minutes prior to each blast, motorists should be prepared for possible delays and lane closures as crews set concrete barrier prior to each scheduled closure.

Motorists seeking an alternate route can consider state routes 77 and 177, which is approximately 68 miles long. Motorists headed to the White Mountains region, including Show Low and Springerville, can take State Route 87 through Payson and travel east on State Route 260.

Drivers should use caution, watch for construction equipment and personnel, and allow extra time.

Hi everyone,

Quick intro - My username is Jace230, I currently live in Prescott Valley and am for the most part working on checking street names against the GIS and adding in roads for the new developments that are popping up in Prescott and Prescott Valley.

Additionally I ran into a question while I was out driving today-

Could someone help me out on what the best course of action is when a road that has an FC of Major Collector also has a section of gnarly dirt road, complete with a sign that states "Impassible in wet weather"? It is currently marked as a primary street, however for a section at least I believe it would be better suited as dirt road/4x4 trail.

The area in question is Old Black Canyon Hwy between E Cibola Cir and Stoneridge Dr
