Someone sitting near a time zone line may be willing to try this out: two similar TBTRs valid since e.g. 10:00 at two sides of the line, a route through them at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 and note, which one is when taken.

Hi guys. I need help with a major event in Barcelona that will close two of the major streets in the city. I've sent a request in this site (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1R0XIsG ... o/viewform) and today waze sent me an e-mail that accept the event. Now I don't know what is the next step to do correctly this event.

Please help, and sorry for my english..

I managed to close the N35 singlehandedly. It has a l5 travel lock.

Hi, I'm trying to fill road closures regarding FIFA's World Cup event in Curitiba, Brazil, and apparently I have read-only access to that spreadsheet. What am I missing? Thank you.

Just wondering what time zone is used for starting/displaying the hazards for an event. The City to Surf run here in Perth, Western Australia was held today and is shown as an event on the events.waze.com website.

Thing is, it's the middle of the night here and the client app is showing all hazards related to the road closures for the event. I don't recall seeing them earlier today in the app.

We are still getting event pop ups, during morning peak drive time, for the City to Surf event which was held yesterday over 24 hours ago.

I absolutely LOVE this idea.

I know Waze Champs will be taking care of the updates, but maybe in the future you can open it up to Area Managers, but in a more limited fashion.

For instance, maybe the Area Managers/Country Managers can have a way to provide update suggestions to Champs.

Just a thought.

Are closures submitted through this Event Traffic Center limited to the Tiles Update schedule, or are they more time-specific, for example, 8 pm on a Friday through 5 am the following Monday?

I submitted one for I-95 in Delaware. On the first page of the submittal I made it clear the times the roads would be closed. The second page (with the permalinks of the affected roads) does not allow me to specify a date along with the time(s).
