Virginia normally does not lower segment locks for closures. It adds to managing the relock level on long and short term closures. So please provide the information in the Virginia Discord channel (or VA Wazers GHO channel) and provide the relevant information and the Real Time Closure will be added. Then when it expires the road segment is properly locked. If the closure is no longer relevant than please permalink the segment(s) in one of the above channels.
When managing a section of roadway under construction or being closed for a major event, follow the Wiki guidelines on construction zones and Real time closures.
