If you look at the form responses there is a color code from Waze for "Alerts Only" (scroll to the bottom of the responses)

That may be a good idea. In the interim, I guess I'll ask Amit directly.

Events without closures

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Aug 24, 2013 12:59 am

Since this traffic event thing has the feature of being able to warn drivers in the area, is it acceptable to use it for events which may have traffic impacts, but do not have closures, and are large enough in scale that you can't put any closures which make sense into Waze anyway?

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?
