| The new Waze Wiki, aka Wazeopedia, is now live at Wazeopedia.waze.com! While this legacy wiki will remain accessible for the time being, it is no longer updated by the community. For the most up-to-date guidance, please visit your local Wazeopedia.
Please do not make any more updates to these legacy wiki pages, all future updates should be made in your country's local Wazeopedia.
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.
|Road Name||Editor||Closed Date||Est Open Date||Links and comments|
|Old McKenzie Pass OR-242||AlanOfTheBerg||2016-11||Summer 2017||
Both gates closed for the winter.
KEEP THE FOLLOWING FOR FUTURE REFERENCE:
Area Places for the closure gates should be large in the winter for better app visibility. Shrink the area in the summer.
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. http://www.tripcheck.com/Pages/CCview.asp?Num=2&cam1=2627&cam2=2623 Traffic Cameras in the area]
