Major Construction Projects & Road Closures

Postby MGODLEW » Fri Oct 04, 2013 2:53 pm

Hi all Pennsylvania editors!

I wanted to create an official post where editors can post about long term road closures & construction projects currently in place that would impact the Waze Map. In most cases you should disconnect these segments to prevent Waze from routing along a certain stretch of road. You should NEVER delete a road simply because of construction or a closure. If you perform such steps in WME, please add CONST ZN to the end of the Street Name & document it here so other area managers can ensure the roads are reconnected at the appropriate time. Be sure to include in your post: a Permalink to the road, Road Name, Start Date, Est End Date, and any Links/Comments. There is also a Wiki page in place for this however posting here to the forum is the preferred method.

PennDOT's Construction Projects are listed by District. Use this interactive map to find the relevant District, then select Roadwork and choose the category on the left side of the screen to check on Current & Future Projects, Current Road Closures and Scheduled Maintenance.

Orbitc -

Is the wiki page intending to replace this forum thread, or just supplement it?
While the Wiki is a great central place for alerting others of ongoing / planned construction, the board's View Your Posts link makes it easy to be notified of new projects and to exchange ideas with other active editors in the state.

Hat's off to MGODLEW to the extensive work done in the Pennsylvania pages.

I'm not too crazy with the Wiki myself. It's too tedious to update or edit. I'm thinking of a better solution. Give me a day to get an answer on that.
@MGODLEW, please hold on updating the wiki page.
Thanks.

Monroe County - Barrett Twp
PA 447 Bridge replacement over Spruce Cabin Run: https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-75.24 ... TT&env=usa
Start 2014-01-13
Est End 2014-09

As per PennDOT Dist. 5 website "The project also includes replacing the PA 447 Bridge over Spruce Cabin Run in Barrett Township. Work is anticipated to begin on the PA 447 Bridge on Jan. 13, 2014, and is expected to be complete in September. During construction PA 447 will be closed and detoured between PA 390 and Mill Creek Road. Traffic will be detoured on PA 191 and PA 390. All schedules are weather dependent."

Should Mill Creek Rd to Henry Price Rd. to Spruce Cabin Rd. to State Rte 390 be changed to Minor Hwy so software will route according to detour?

That probably the safest bet. Though, there are not many options nearby.
