Watsonville Street view goof (2012)

Google maps sends a car to photograph a street view of selected routes. Normally, when the routes cross, there is a slight change in traffic. On rare occasions you can see a change in features if there is a delay between when one route is photographed and the cross route is photographed later. As happened in Watsonville.

View from Peck StreetView from Union Street.View from Trafton Street.

Following Peck Street in Watsonville, it crosses Union Street to meet Trafton Street.. On the first click to move the view across Union Street to Trafton Street, the path appears blocked by a fenced driveway. On the second click to move the view forward, the street is suddenly clear again. The shadow in the first and second view is from the car with cameras atop the roof. There is no longer a vehicle entrance to Trafton Street from the south. See the entry on Trafton Street to see a photo of the finished construction.
