Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello, there is an error on the OSM map of part of Vancouver Island. A name has been given to a road which actually belongs to another road. I don't know how to identify the particular tile so I'm not sure how to explain where the error is. I can send a screen shot but I don't know if that would help. The road named Young Lake Road at N48⁰ 24.680' W123⁰ 46.861' actually turns north at this point. The road that continues west has a designation of B22, it is a logging road. Thank you

I did try the edit function but I understand that it may take some time to show the change on different platforms. I'm waiting to see how successful I was.
