For closures of significant length, disconnecting via the editor is the recommended method.

Per orit_y in another thread
... this feature was build for closures up to 3 days max.

Montreal got some issues,

8 segments of roads are close to traffic for the pedestrians from 8 mai to mid-September (for the summer)
for now editors got to swap streets to pedestian boardwalk the time going, but many Automated reports hits by the roads history.

this is a link to the news that report it "in french"
http://www.radio-canada.ca/nouvelles/so ... real.shtml

an other link for the news "in english"
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/ ... sures.html

thanks

That's considered a long-term closure and should be disconnected in the map - using the "Pedestrian Boardwalk" type will not prevent routing.

Yes, see How to handle road closures in the Waze wiki.

Time restrictions aren't visible on the map. By using this system, you get color coding & Road Closed icons (and larger events get event pages & push notifications, etc).

Starting with 28.6.2013 until 30.8.2013, on each Friday at approx. 21:00-22:xx, there will be an evening's inline skates drive through various parts of Slovak capitol - Bratislava. This year it is already the 10th anniversary of the event. The routes will use regular busy roads, with support of city management and police and etc. - hopefully also with the help of Waze? ;-)

There are a couple of known predefined routes, the exact one, which will be used, gets known each week some 2-3 days in advance. We have already some available (and are preparing more) lists of known segment IDs to be reused.

Reason: Shifted the even startup times back to 21:00.

Luckily the Support could successfully enter closure details for one (our third attempt) of the recurring events I've mentioned some ten posts ago viewtopic.php?p=486492#p486492 and the timing of these closures was pretty exact.

Support asked for having the data at least one and half day in advance. Because of Friday being an Israeli weekend day, it meant for us two and a half day, at least.

I suspected the culprit was an Israeli weekend :-|

At the second attempt, I had to deliver our segmens until Tuesday to surely get them locked for a Friday evening.

I just have entered a two-day event. I had one problem: I could not specify which closures were for which day.

Just in case this is read by te people that have to put the event in the database: For the Hellendoorn Rally, all 16:00-00:00 closures are for the 20th, all 00:00-23:59 closures are for the 21st.
