The Brimfield Flea Market http://www.brimfield.com/ is held 3 times a year each for a week in Brimfield Ma.. right on Route 20.

Area affected starts At: N 42° 06.849 W 72° 13.590 through N 42° 07.024 W 72° 11.860

all on Route 20...

Route 20 Westbound is traditionally busy from Sturbridge to Brimfield during those times as well.

I find it easier to use the Mass Pike ( RT 90 ) during those times.

Hi,

I sent an event a few days ago but I did not get answers. Is there a specific number of kilometers or in terms of time for the events to be validated?

If not, there are several events to be in Switzerland with Slow Down, which are car-free days. Usable only with non-motorized vehicles or on foot. This usually lasts for one day and about 30 km

In Paris, every summer they create "Paris Plage"meaning "Paris beach".
They close many major roads close to the "Seine" and only pedestrian can walk on it.

Every week, Paris circle major road is closed for work renovation.
Many many wazers use it and what a pity when waze tells us to go on circle when in reality it is closed.
I hope it will be possible soon to input schedule.

You are welcome to offer any event that you think can cause major road closers.
Waze localization experts and Waze team will review it, relevant events will be published.

... this feature was build for closures up to 3 days max.

Does this mean a separate "event" will need to be defined for each day of parades during the Mardi Gras season? It's essentially a two-and-a-half-week event.

edit: Looking at the form, and due to the complexity of the closures, it's clear I'm going to have to create at least one event per day for the Mardi Gras season. It isn't until next February-March, so there's no rush.

double edit: Another question, how much advance notice do we need? NOPD often sends French Quarter weekend festival closure information out only a couple days in advance.

This could have been so useful when the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship! Traffic was horrendous and Waze didn't know what was closed and what as open. :(

Luckily the Support could successfully enter closure details for one (our third attempt) of the recurring events I've mentioned some ten posts ago viewtopic.php?p=486492#p486492 and the timing of these closures was pretty exact.

Support asked for having the data at least one and half day in advance. Because of Friday being an Israeli weekend day, it meant for us two and a half day, at least.

You could consider Tour of Utah. The problem is that it starts next Tuesday, the 6th of August. 586 miles of road closures over 6 consecutive days. The teams represent 7 countries from 4 continents. Plus the first stage is in my back yard!
