Having a similar list for construction would be nice, and could produce the hard hat icon pop-up reports with the relevant details.


What if the road was tagged with (Closed)? Would the barricades show up then?

Only if it was added to the list. Bit that would be against the guidelines because "(closed)" should only be used on disconnected segments, and roads on the list are not to be disconnected.

Well, (Closed) is now almost completely obviated as far as I'm concerned because we have a working closure feature (via the sheet) which is represented on the app map display. So that bit of the guidance can be removed as far as I'm concerned.

I have only used (Construction Zone) for long-term no-closure traffic pattern shifts. I don't think anything less permanent should be marked—if there's little evidence of construction besides barrels and equipment parked on the shoulder when no one is working, that's not enough for me. I think it's valuable when the warning is warranted 24/7, not when there /might/ be construction as you pass through.

I agree, but there should be some guidance for closures to notify someone (CM, RC) with access to the closure sheet.

My suggestion was primarily to have a sheet to use for long term projects with lane shifts etc.

What about construction sites which ate active for a number of hours daily causing closed lanes and make traffic hold ups, no shoulder access, etc? They could benefit from it too.

If it's a long term project that would be considered major, then the (Construction Zone) would be added. Anything shorter than a month would be left alone, unless, it was also a major thing.

Regardless, unless a road is completely closed for an extended period of time, hourly/daily lane closures and traffic detours would be handled by Waze in real time, along with the reports from drivers at that time.
