Of course, if there are other mega events that will obstruct traffic in a significant way, we are happy to hear about it. That being said, please use your best judgement and only send us events without road closures that are sure to cause significant disruptions in the city's daily traffic flow. This example, is a great one. We would have done our best to help in every way during those events, had we known about them.

These closures have to be inputted into the system manaually - the earlier you submit them, the more time Waze has to implement them. Remember, Waze HQ is in Israel and is closed on Friday & Saturday for their weekend.

I'm thinking (too late for this year) specifically of large running/walking events (biking events would quality too) like the Hood to Coast Relay. It is 198 miles long, 12,600 runners and 3,600 volunteers, using about 3,000 support vehicles. It runs primarily along US-26 from Mt. Hood into Portland, and then on US-30 from Portland to the coast, and a little bit of US-101 on the coast.
Oregon DOT puts out a warning to drivers each year. But again, there's no closures. Just awareness that there are some lane closures and possibly some other traffic impacts in congested areas.
Is this kind of thing valid for a Mega Event just from a "warning" standpoint?
