Or, as @galenward put it in bringing the situation to our attention, Google says Broadway is “dead” between Republican and Harrison.
As far as we can tell, directions using the Google system will still route you on the missing street chunk.
It’s not the first weird thing we’ve seen show up on Google maps but it’s one of our favorites so far and right up there with the sudden appearance of the oft-use CHS label for 15th Ave “Hilltop” suddenly appearing as a label for the area on the online giant’s third-party provided mapping info.
We’ll see what we can find out from GOOG support about the flub. Maybe the famous Google self-driving car got stuck in streetcar traffic.
