Junctions and cross traffic
When adding a Real-Time Closure consider whether any cross traffic will be blocked as well. Often in work zones and for special events (parades, marathons, festivals) cross traffic is not allowed at one or more junctions.
Waze will not route through a closed segment. It will, however, route up to the nearest end of a closed segment to reach a destination within it. Waze will also route out of the most convenient end of a closed segment if the user starts within it. If traffic going across your Real-Time Closure must be blocked at a junction, you will need to close at least one of the cross street segments as well.
- Regular cross-streets
- Close both cross-street segments on either side of the closed intersection, in both directions.
- Closing a single segment will allow routing across the junction to a destination on that segment in the direction facing away from the closed intersection. Closing both segments will prevent routing across the junction to reach a destination or leave a starting point, regardless of the user's position in relation to that junction.
- Median segments of closed divided roadways
- When both directions of a divided roadway are closed and cross traffic is disallowed, consider closing only the median segment.
- When cross traffic between the lanes of a divided roadway is prohibited, closing the median segment will prevent routing to destinations on the far side of the divided roadway.
