Mardi Gras

New Orleans, Louisiana

Mardi Gras may be a widely celebrated event across the states, but when you hear the name you immediately think of New Orleans. New Orleans is where the streets flood with locals and tourists, year after year, catching festive beads thrown by riders on parade floats and enjoying live music. While parades and pedestrians take to the streets, traffic and road closures become prevalent. The Waze community has updated the map with significant road closures, including our best approximation of the closures of the parade routes themselves, and will continue to add hazards as they unfold in real-time.
