Recently I have seen a few and I think the amount of people needed to close a street is lowered a lot!

Lucky you! In the cases that you saw, did it actually prevent routing?

Not sure. Was a very small road at the other side of the country.. ;-)

But I guess so. The street was red/white.

I managed to close the N35 singlehandedly. It has a l5 travel lock.

Did you check that it was blocked for others too? Cause blocking yourself works perfect.

Are closures submitted through this Event Traffic Center limited to the Tiles Update schedule, or are they more time-specific, for example, 8 pm on a Friday through 5 am the following Monday?

These closures are not limited to tile updates, and does support things like 8pm on Friday through 5am on Monday. Please make it clear that it is a continious closure when you are submitting it (so they do one continuous closures instead of a repeating closure that would close the road from 8pm to 5am the next morning for Friday night, Saturday night & Sunday night).

I submitted one for I-95 in Delaware. On the first page of the submittal I made it clear the times the roads would be closed. The second page (with the permalinks of the affected roads) does not allow me to specify a date along with the time(s).

Several of us have asked use to have them change that & allow date/time entry for each closure.

I'll take a look at what you've submitted & PM orit_y (Waze staffer who made the original post) to make sure they do it correctly. They may email your directly about this to verify things...
