These closures have to be inputted into the system manaually - the earlier you submit them, the more time Waze has to implement them. Remember, Waze HQ is in Israel and is closed on Friday & Saturday for their weekend.

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.

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.

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:

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.
