Road Closures

This section contains details about road closures currently in place in Waze, usually through disconnecting of segments to prevent Waze from routing along a certain stretch of road. If you perform a closure in Waze, please document it here so other area managers can ensure the roads are reconnected at the appropriate time.

Future New or Realigned Roads

Large road construction projects often have website project pages and give notice to the public prior to starting. If we stage these roads in Waze and have them ready to deploy when they open to the public, Waze will be a leader in update map providers.

I-5 @ Exit 24 Fern Valley Interchange (Phoenix) April 2014 - 2016 The Fern Valley interchange has been constructed using a 'crossing' or 'diverging diamond' design that provides a higher capacity to move traffic while requiring lower right-of-way needs. At this time, we do not believe the bridge will require any special mapping for the reversed traffic flow.

AlanOfTheBerg has upgraded several area roadways to Major Highway or Minor Highway or Primary Street in order to encourage Waze navigation to more easily accept these alternate routes.

The project has fully opened to traffic. The remaining work should not affect traffic. Traffic Cameras in the area]
