Waze uses local time based on the client. This is the same as it uses for ETA calculation. The server doesn't know or understand time zones. If the client tells the routing server it's 11:30, and the server knows the road is closed 11-4, the server will tell the client it's closed.

Presumably, since mobile phones set time and time zone automatically, the client's clock can be trusted. So there's no real need for the routing server to be time-zone-aware except perhaps for proper ETA calculations on routes that cross time zone lines.

During one of our managed events the local time zone, anything else wouldn't make sense. But i would mention the time zone to be sure.

Probably been mentioned, but scrambling here...what time zone is being used? Should I assume that in the form? I don't remember it specifying that so I just put the local time. So are the events posting in advance and will last through the event end anyways? Some questions I guess I am not sure of. Thanks!

I have a 2 weeks old screenshot (up to date beta), where I believe seeing 32-34 wazer icons. Has this limit been recently raised from 20 (after a strong resistance)? If we could expect the same at least for zebras and color-coded jams? The pins can be partially worked out with grouping and flipping.

I don't know, but I hope that's true. Otherwise, it could be way too cluttered to be useful.

I have submitted an event here in Philadelphia. It's the 'Budweiser Made In America Music Festival'. The city closes a large section of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and adjacent streets for a 2 day concert. Details are in this thread: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=58670

If anyone wants to take a look at it on the client, the road closures start on Thursday and ramp up until Saturday, when dozens of city blocks are affected through Tuesday AM rush hour. With the number of segments affected, I have a feeling there will be hundreds of pins showing up on the client. Not sure how that's going to look?

I didn't test it, but indeed. Only 20% of the roads had a red and white dashed line.
