Major_roads/Main: u-turn turning circle update
==== Roads named N, S, E or W ====
If you encounter any roads that are named N, S, E, or W, you must add a period (.) to the end of the letter. For example, West N Street is abbreviated as '''W N. St'''. County Road W is abbreviated as '''CR-W.''', and so on. This ensures the TTS system reads the road name as "County Road WWest EN Street" and not "County Road West.North Street" This does not apply to county roads or Nebraska state highways and spurs abbreviated as N-##X or Spurs abbreviated as and S-##X. Waze recognizes these as county roads, state highways and spurs, respectively, and pronounces them correctly.
==== Locking standard ====
 In Nebraska, we observe a minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked '''at least''' to the rank listed in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (construction, confusing design, frequent mistakes, image inaccuracies, etc.), but should not be locked lower. {| class="wikitable" style="text-align:center; margin: 1em auto 1em auto; width: 40%"|+ Nebraska Minimum Locking Ranks! Segment Type !! Rank|-| {{Freeway}}||4|-| {{Ramp}}||4|-| {{Major Highway}} || 3|-| {{Minor Highway}} || 3|-| {{Primary Street}} || 2|-Lock Standard State| {{RailroadNE}}|| 2|-| All Others || 1|} Although common practice is to limit editing freeways to rank 5 or higher, we have determined that the experience required to reach editing rank 4 is sufficient to gain the privilege of editing freeway segments.
=== Nebraska Functional Classification ===
For the most part, Nebraska's Functional Classification is pretty straightforward. For the purposes of FC, we use the National Function Classification maps. Nebraska divides its FC in to two classes, ''Urban'' and ''Rural,''. There are several several road types listed as '''Urban Principal Arterial'''. Because Waze only identifies each has a single '''Principal Arterial''' category, the ''Connecting Link'' and ''Non-Connecting Link'' Principal Arterial categories are considered the sameseparate table below. '''Interstates''' and '''Other Freeways & Expressways''' are always drawn as a {{Freeway}} despite being even if listed under '''Urban Principal Arterial'''.

{{note|af|af}} There are currently no bannered Interstates in Nebraska. {{note|g|g}} A true '''controlled-access freeway''' should always be classified as a {{Freeway|Fw}}. Some expressways however, are only partially controlled-access and do not qualify for classification as a freeway. Use your best judgment on which to choose. {{note|h|h}} See [https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=634&t=189264 this forum thread] about the decision to upgrade State Spurs that are Rural Major Collectors to Minor Highway.

# The u-turn is explicitly allowed by signage OR
# The u-turn is otherwise legal and safe, and there There is '''''at least 10.1 m ''''' 15 meters (33 49 feet) from the left right edge of the legal departure lane to the right edge of the "destination" curb(49 foot turning circle). This can include any median that may exist to the left of the departure lane. (This is to ensure the turn can be completed in one continuous movement, which is a legal requirement in many places).
Note that when editing, a functional u-turn can arise from more than just the u-turn flag on a road segment, such as with these common scenarios:

=== Speed Limits ===
 
Nebraska follows the Waze [[Speed limits/USA|USA speed limits]] guidance. Please read that page carefully before editing any Speed Limits (SLs).
 
Nebraska does not alter speed limits for work zones.
 
Speed limit changes in NE should occur in both directions of travel at the same point (a slowdown from 65mph to 45mph in one direction has a matching 65mph sign in the opposite direction of travel).
* Opposing signs are often not exactly opposite the road from each other; place the speed change halfway between them.
* If there is a substantial distance separating opposing signs (multiple seconds of driving at full speed), bring it to the attention of a State Manager.
 
==== Speed Limit standards ====
The following are the [http://nebraskalegislature.gov/laws/statutes.php?statute=60-6,186 speed limits laws of Nebraska], except where posted signs indicate differently (most commonly in/near urban areas).
 
* Residential district: '''25''' mph. These are generally unsigned unless a Primary Street type or higher.
* Business district: '''20''' mph. It is generally believed these are all signed, and no assumptions about what constitutes a "business district" must be made.
* Gravel or dirt city/county highway: '''50''' mph. The majority of these are ''not'' signed.
* Paved city/county highway: '''55''' mph. These are generally signed when leaving/entering an urban area, but may lack signs elsewhere.
* State highway: '''60''' mph, unless signed otherwise.
* State expressway or State freeway: '''65''' mph.
* (National) Interstate: '''75''' mph. There are slowdowns in/near some major urban areas.
