When the M3 was completely closed between J6 and J7 last year, waze would still happily try and route you through it.
One of the new features that was revealed at the NA meeting is higher ranking editors (details yet to be determined) will have to ability to dynamically apply real-time time of day road closures to the Live map. IOW it works directly with Live by creating a virtual traffic jam with an average speed of 0 that lasts X amount of time.
The timeline for this was said to be 6 months (I hope sooner so you have this for the Olympics), and is something that obviously exists already internally as that was what was done for Carmageddon.
