I'm new to MapShare and wondering what the light purple highlighted section of a highway means? There are sections of I-95 in New Hampshire just South of Portsmouth, Maine that are highlighted light purple causing Google Maps to avoid this section of the highway. I can't find anything wrong with this section and also do not know how to see what the report is and/or what the purple highlight means.

    The line in purple means that the piece of road is prohibited
    in my opinion it's more of a bug on the map than a ban.

    There seem to be many stretches of highway in and around this area including Boston with the same issue and it is affecting Google Maps users. Apple Maps is not having the same issue.

    Also, is there any way in MapShare to see what the post originally was or who posted it? I'm surprised clickin gon the area only brings up an opion for me to add something and not note what is already there.
