If a road closure is part of a larger event, it can be submitted to Waze as a Major Traffic Event, or MTE. MTEs are generally determined by the scale of the event and how many people will be impacted. The closures should be submitted using the MTE sheets provided. This way Waze is able to track the closures and help spread the word.
To receive further support from Waze (website and/or push + inbox message) for a closure, the event must be submitted through the MTE submission form below.
To notify Waze of a coming event in your area, use the MTE Submission Form
. Helpful information to have for submissions are as follows:
Name of Event
Website for event
Roads which will be effected (not necessary)
Start and End Date
Start and End Time (if available)
All MTE submissions are posted to the Waze Mini Site
(if the mini site gives an error try refreshing the page) so that other editors in your area can find the name for an event and mark the closure consistently.
The closures for each MTE are submitted in a unique Google Sheets spreadsheet
. If you need access to a particular event spreadsheet, request access in the spreadsheet and it will be granted by Waze HQ.
