:How long will the road be closed? For closures of only a few days, we volunteer map editors can't be much help. It takes at least that long for our edits to make it to devices! When you encounter short-term road closures in the future, please use the Report->Closure feature in the Waze app. If this is a long-term closure please respond and let us know as much as you can (how long, between which locations). Thanks!

:The issue may have been a voice cache issue on your device. Enter cc@tts (case sensitive) in navigation field and hit Search. A pop up will say it has been cleared. It will take a few days to build it back up, so some streets may have no spoken instructions briefly.
