Introduction to Road Closures

Road Closures can be used to maintain an inventory of road closures and communicate closures and detours to travelers.

Public works and public safety departments close roads for construction activities, special events, and public safety incidents, often creating detours for drivers. Proactively managing and communicating closure and detour information helps residents and drivers navigate an altered road landscape and avoid unnecessary congestion. Road Closures is typically implemented by public works and public safety agencies that want to have a single catalog of roads impacted by construction activities, events, and incidents and share this information with the public.

The Road Closures solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you inventory road closures and related detours, communicate closures and detours with the public, and share authoritative closure information with consumer applications, such as Waze.
