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.

New Year's Day Parade in RTC Town
RTC Town has scheduled a parade down Main St on January 1 starting at 13:00 and ending at 14:00. Traffic must not be allowed to travel along Main St or cross at any intersection.
Select the parade route on Main St and set a two-way closure between 13:00 and 14:00 on January 1.
Plum Rd is a two-way cross-street, Orchard Rd, and Mulberry St are one-way cross-streets. To route traffic to the correct sides of these streets, the segments north and south of Main St should be set with two-way closures between 13:00 and 14:00.
The completed set of closures in this example would look like those on the right. We’re all set to watch the parade!
Divided road closed for construction
Willow St will be closed for two weeks for construction. So we set a closure for the length of both carriageways.
Cherry Ave crosses Willow St in a ‘H’ configuration. In this case, we need to close only the median segment to prevent traffic from being routed through the intersection or to the wrong side of Willow. Note, we set no closures on Rose St because it is a T-intersection.
