DMV storm road closure not shown

Postby AgedNerd » Wed Feb 22, 2017 9:54 pm

Yesterday, California DMV closed I-80 because of a heavy snowstorm. My friend was at Northstar/Tahoe, trying to get home to Sacramento, and Waze was routing him to I-80. Obviously, Waze didn't know the road was closed. Looking at some other postings, it appears he could not have reported the problem to Waze because to do that he'd have had to get to I-80. Google Maps also recommended I-80 routing. I don't know how long I-80 had been closed when he was working on the routing. So, I have two questions:

#1 -- Doesn't Waze automatically hook into state road status sites (e.g. CA DMV Road conditions http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/roadinfo/mtnhwys.htm) to adjust routing when a highway is closed?

#2 -- Is there some way my friend could have reported to Waze that I-80 was closed from his car without driving over to I-80?

Thanks.

Highyway 89 at Emerald Bay has been closed for 7 hours with no ETO. Can they please post that as well?


89 is still closed from Emerald Bay to Bliss State Park. It looks like there a couple markers in the map editor to identify the section that should be closed.

Sorry that the closures where not put in, but conditions change all the time on the passes.
The closures are mostly put in by volunteers. And there have been a lot of activity in California this past week!
DMV does not handle anything related to the road conditions, BUT Caltrans (California Department of Transportation) does and are connected through the WAZE CCP program.

Thank you for letting us know, I have requested a senior editor to review and place in the closure.

I apologize for the delay, I am going to send you a private message (which is a general welcome message) and at the bottom I will give you a contact to reach me at slightly more directly.

I apologize for the delay and inconvenience, just got back home from church.

You should be able to enter a closure via the app. You can find out how here.

You can also post your request in the California forum.

80 is closed again. It's been closed since early this morning, but Waze is still directing everyone to 80 as though it's still open.

Can I post the closure?
