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.

When did you send in the request?
Did you check if the road was actually closed?

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

For the projet-event,

Montreal got some issues,

8 segments of roads are close to traffic for the pedestrians from 8 mai to mid-September (for the summer)
for now editors got to swap streets to pedestian boardwalk the time going, but many Automated reports hits by the roads history.

this is a link to the news that report it "in french"
http://www.radio-canada.ca/nouvelles/so ... real.shtml

an other link for the news "in english"

In Baltimore, there's the Marathon (Running Festival) early October. http://www.thebaltimoremarathon.com/
There is Artscape also in July that closes several streets downtown Baltimore as well. I need to find more information about road closure so I can add this to the database. http://www.artscape.org/

... 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.

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.
