Introduction

Aloha to everyone interested in editing the Waze map for Hawaii! We look forward to working with new editors to help keep up with changes to the transportation system and points-of-interest across the state. Adding new editors who live in Maui, Kauai and Hawaii counties is an especially critical priority, as well as editors with access to military bases, but everyone is welcome — your contributions are needed.
However, it's important that managers be able to contact you, so all editors will be required to have private messaging turned on.

Major roads

Functional Classification

Hawaii is following the Functional Classification (FC) system for the USA, according to the federal Functional Classification standards adopted by the state Department of Transportation. Please do not alter roadway types without consulting with a state manager.

Lock Levels

We observe the following minimum lock levels for Waze road types:

HAWAII STANDARDS
ROAD TYPE LOCK LEVEL
  Freeway  4
  Ramp  4
  Major Highway  3
  Minor Highway  3
  Primary Street  2
All Others 1
Additional:


Note that these are minimums and, for protection, certain segments may be at higher lock levels.

U-turns

This is interim guidance for California, until such time as National standards are agreed upon.

U-turns on *two-way* Primary Street through Major Highway type roads may be enabled in the following two circumstances:

  • 1) The U-turn is _explicitly_ allowed by signage
  • 2) The U-turn is otherwise legal and safe, and there is _at least_ 10.1 m (33 feet) from the left edge of the departure lane to the "destination" curb. This can include any median that may exist to the left of the departure lane.

Do NOT make a point of enabling all U-turns valid under this guidance, only as you encounter them and they are necessary. Do not enable U-turns on Street type roads. This guidance could change in the future.
