Downed light pole on 495 shoulder.

Postby AW15 » Wed Apr 10, 2019 6:33 pm

There's a downed light pole just past the entrance from Georgia Ave Southbound to the 495 Inner Loop. Some friends of mine drove over it 6 days ago, and people are still driving over it today... I put a note on the map, could a moderator add some kind of warning to people entering from Georgia Ave?

To Report highway emergencies, such as traffic signal outages or sinkholes to the Statewide Operations Center toll-free at 1-800-543-2515 or locally at 410-582-5650. For routine service requests involving a State route, the most effective method of contact is MDOT SHA's Service Request form.

District office: 8 am - 4:30 pm

I see you added a map comment on the NB I-97 Georgia Ave ramp to the inner loop - so not sure which is it.

To answer your original question, there is no way to warn drivers from within the map editor, no matter what your editing level. Warnings can only be generated from within the app, or by certain government agencies that have joined Waze’s Connected Communities Program.
