This is actually something for March through April 2014 but it seems there will be a One Fund Relay that will go through 14 states, starting in Santa Monica, CA and ending in Boston, MA. Don't know whether this will affect traffic or not or what the route is but it is reported that it will follow the Boston Marathon route (which includes busy roads [Route 9, Boylston St, Storrow Drive]). I will try to see if I can get more details but for now, here is the news report:

~Edit~
So I found the official website that shows the proposed route going through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. The route is actually divided up into segments (stages) of about 10 miles and the website states what time each segment will start.

The problem there is no set deadline. If depending on how big the event is waze will put more effort into getting it set up. So some events get picked up and other do not. We do need to work out better communications so we know what's going on when we submit an event.

I had submitted it on thursday 12September2013 and the event will be held on Monday 16Sept2013. I think the notice of 4 day will be good enough. They still have Sunday to manually input the 7 roads affected.
Now its too late for anything. I would like to suggest that, its better to give each request to be send at least a Week earlier. State it clearly on the form. This will make everyone know the time needed.

I had send a request for road closure to Event Center requesting for road clossing for our Malaysia Mega Event that is our Malaysia Day Parade on 12 September2013. Since this is our National and Historic event of the country, a vey massive jammed will happened. And most all the route to the event centre will be closed for public from 0500 till 1300 hrs(+8hrs GMT) on 16September2013. ( to be exact the event is going to happen in 9 hrs time and road closure will begin in 7 hrs time. So far I dont get any respond to my request.

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?


Our priority is first and foremost to cover events causing major road closures. Of course, if there are other mega events that will obstruct traffic in a significant way, we are happy to hear about it.

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