Please note at the moment the marker is case-sensitive "(Closed)". Let me know if I shall ignore the case.

Hmm, that's exactly what I do - put all the possible destinations shown on the road sign in ramp streetnames. If the check is useful to others that's fine. But I'm not limiting my ramp names to 65 characters.

The "CONST ZN" suffix was a relic from a time before text-to-speech. It's pronounced "Const Zee Enn", which makes no sense. Adding the parentheses adds a pause, and now it says what it means, and it's easier to read, too. Also, when applied to closed roads, "CONST ZN" isn't really descriptive. I wouldn't expect the standard to change again unless Waze gives us a construction zone flag with a little digging man icon. One change to the Wiki in 3-4 years isn't too bad
As such, the Validator should show results for anything containing "Construction Zone", "Closed", or "CONST ZN". The first two as a reminder, and the last so it can be changed.

I would also exclude the word "to" from the lower case filter selection as shown here

Maybe I used the wrong term, but I would not like to see editors to lynch other editors using Validator.

It's been a known issue for four years and unofficially discussed at each NA meet. It's not really something that can be solved either without hamstringing the community's ability to police the map under the current system of edits with no approval. It's not particularly high-priority issue either since editing is voluntary and a public activity.
