I find it very funny that no one reports roads closed (i.e. for a bridge replacement) when they get closed, but always report them the week before they reopen... Just got a UR that says
Type: Missing bridge overpass
Description: bridge out road closed
and when I checked with the town, their website says
The closure will begin on Monday, September 17th and will continue through December 1st


Reported one week to the day before it reopens.... :x

Well, in Baton Rouge, the 'road closed' signs go up a few weeks before the work begins.
The dates on the signs are usually several days earlier than the actual start and end dates for the work.

I guess, the work could run late otherplaces too. ;)

Typically here in CT, there are warning signs that go up several weeks to a month in advance for long term work. Unless there is a major storm the construction company/CT DOT will at least put the barriers up that day. For re-openings, it all depends on what's going on. We have several projects that are months ahead of schedule (contractors usually get a bonus for finishing early) and a few that are 3+ years behind schedule (don't ask)... If I see the signs (or press release) about an upcoming closure, I'll try to note it and get the closure done in the map, but I can't know about all of them...

So now we're apparently serving up hours, which we don't store (or display), for POI's which we don't store? :lol:

It's about time the US economy adapts to the needs of 3yo customers. If they feel for donuts, toys, in the middle of the night it is their RIGHT to be accommodated.

Dunkin Donuts advertises with Waze in the US... There are pins for all the Dunkin Donuts locations that just show up on the map without having to search for them... They show Open/Closed with hours when you click on the pin...

Ah, didn't realize the ads had those details. Only ones that show up locally are for hotels, which are of course always open. Krispy Kreme and Tim Horton's apparently keep Dunkin Donuts at bay here, I think there's only 2 inside of the outer belt.
