Reporting a months long closure of freeway onramp and off ramp

Post by frozentundragreen
How would I go about reporting a closure of both on and off ramps ? They are closed for 45 days and my closure reports disappear within a couple  of hours. Google maps shows the closure but not Waze.

This is a great way to do that! Which freeway and ramps?

(By the way, are you setting the closure duration to Long Term?)

I've set the closure time to long term every time I report. I think what happens is Waze believes your exiting on the off ramp and then reroutes when it realizes that I'm still on the free way. It gets rid of the closure because it believes people are still exiting on the off ramp when in reality they're not

Got it. Osborne.

I've added the closure for a longer term. For some reason, it's not appearing in the tool we use to enter Caltrans closures - I think they may have misclassified a bit of data.

There are myriad reasons a closure may not stick, but thanks for your persistence, and for bringing the information here!

Yeah, working on it, thanks. The sequence of closures is complicated, because they're opening during rush hours, and the hours are different on weekends. Sorting this out of their data is tricky.

Yeah, looks like the closure is gone again.
