I'm took out the bit about "some short term closures" rather than change it to a reference to construction closures -- ther really is no definitive information to be found about partial restrictions for constructio related closures, and the user winds up in the article I construction, which seems to need a makeover, and then back to partial restrictions.
The truth is we currently use partial restrictions whenever we fear the stripey beta-WME closures falling off, but that bug and how we mitigate that risk is not currently covered in closures, which is where it probably should be covered, not as one of the primary reasons for using partial restrictions.
Partial restriction can also be used in the process of connecting up new construction, but that could probably better be described in the article on construction, as this one seems mostly to be about the mechanics of partial restrictions, not about the careful process of bringing new freeway segments online just in time.
That's my thinking, anyway.

I gave advice on when to consult closures, but did not include all the closures detail in this article. Probably the overview section could use some pruning as well. My eventual goal is to simplify the language, provide enough details to help make good choices, but make the whole thing less wordy and less complicated.

short term construction (long term closures should use disconnected roads, though time restrictions may be used to synchronize the start or end of the closure period)
Disconnect road segments - Road segments should only be physically disconnected if the road is no longer intended to connect or is being permanently removed. While In the past, this method was used for longer term construction projects, the Road Closure feature should now be used.
short term construction (see Disconnect road segments below, for permanent closure situations)
