I agree with hmarian, at this point anyone making travel plans to Toronto will already know about the Skyway Closure. I'm pretty certain every single electronic highway sign going toward that closure is letting drivers know where it is closed and how to detour.

I don't think we should make WME changes at this time.

At this point Monday is the best guess, but this may get pushed again, who knows?
It's not opening Monday. Have you seen the overhead pictures?
I looked at the segments on the Toronto Bound QEW several times today and the backed up traffic was showing very well on Livemap and affected routing in the area, which tells me that either Wazers reported closures from the App or once a few of them got sucked in traffic it sent the information to Waze and the routing server started suggest alternate routes around the bridge.
The exit to Eastport Dr is right adjacent to the affected span. That's where the traffic is heading. Waze would be telling users to go across the closed span because of all the traffic that is now on Eastport Dr, when the app closures expire.

I also questioned that estimate, but we can only based our decisions on official information we get from the news.

The exit to Eastport Dr is right adjacent to the affected span. That's where the traffic is heading. Waze would be telling users to go across the closed span because of all the traffic that is now on Eastport Dr, when the app closures expire.


Once the user will be detoured off the highway, Waze will take care of putting him back on his best route to where he is going.
