You should also note that if you use the Roads Experimental layer rather than just the roads layer when you make the permalink it won't show that layer. It will give a link to the road you have selected, but it won't show any others, which may be confusing.
First I learned how to draw lines on a map. Now I must learn the art of Feng-ShWaze.

It is still very much in beta, and not ready for important closures.

Question: Is this form only for US based closures (as its in the US subforum)?
If yes, is there one we can use for the World server?

Hi, what is the preferred method for requesting a previously submitted road closure to be removed, such is in the case of a road reopening sooner than the originally published date?

Thanks!

Any chance of getting view-only or comment-only privileges for the spreadsheet for users that submit closures?

How long does it take to set up the closure? I have submitted the form over a week ago.

Just in case:
Here is the info on the closure.

Permalink

I have set a restriction on the segment for the time being, just to stop routing through the bridge.

How can we report the end of the closure?
For example this closure is over, I drove through this segment two days ago. Can it be removed?

Road Closures Form for All Editors

Postby orbitc » Wed Jul 30, 2014 4:09 am

Hi Everyone,

Please fill in this form for construction, work closures and emergency closures.

This form is to be used by all editors who do NOT have direct access to the Waze Road Closure system.

US Champs and State Managers will review your requests and they will be submitted to Waze if approved.

  • Find all the information that you can about the closure- description, dates, times, name of road, relevant webpage.
  • Please provide a permalink with all of the segments that need to blocked, highlighted. This is needed to close each segment.
  • The closures are based on segments ID’s. It’s recommended to lock the segments to a high level, to help prevent any changes during the closure period.
  • Date format: YYYY-MM-DD (ISO-8601)
  • Time format: HH:MM:SS
  • NEW!...Nodes ID's - Use this when you need to block two ways segments but only for one direction. You need to add the node ID's ordered by the closure direction.
  • NEW!...Time Zone Enter only one of these:
    • Pacific,
    • Mountain,
    • Central,
    • Eastern,
    • Hawaii,
    • Alaska,
    • Puerto Rico

Champs and SMs: Please review requests here. Don't forget to enable notifications to get alerted when there is a new request.

Any other major traffic event in your area use this form.



UPDATE! Going forward all editors will be able to review what they submitted and comment if necessary by going to this "Closures for All Editors Sheet"





Thank You and Happy Wazing :)

pumrum wrote:The guidelines mention that closures can be added 24 hours or more prior to an event. Is this subject to the standard WazeHQ availability of Sunday through Thursday (USA time, observing Friday and Saturday as Israel days off), or will events submitted on Friday be live for Sunday (or late Sat)?

I would put TBR and put it in the sheet. Waze is usually get to it even on the weekends but not always.

pumrum wrote:Are these updates subject to the tile updates,...

No

pumrum wrote:will the closures still appear in the app or will they not appear until the tiles update

It will appear in the live map.

pumrum wrote:I see that this is targeted for construction or emergencies, but some are also using this for localized events (parades, etc) which I think is awesome. Some locales such as NYC don't publish full closure information about localized events until very late in the week and I want to make sure it is OK to use this system for those types of events. There is a high impact to traffic, but details are often not provided far enough in advance to qualify for a Major Event.

Yes, you can use it for these kind of events. Events that impact many such as NYC Marathon, please use the even closure form.

Per Waze I added two new tab to the sheet. Please take a look at it. I also updated the guidelines as well. If there is any questions, please let me know.

  • NEW!...Nodes ID's - Use this when you need to block two ways segments but only for one direction. You need to add the node ID's ordered by the closure direction.
  • NEW!...Time Zone Pick one from the List.
