Introduction to Road Closures

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

Road closures can have a significant impact on the public's daily routines and travel plans. If a road is closed unexpectedly, it can cause delays, detours, and inconvenience for drivers, pedestrians, and public transportation. In some cases, road closures may also impact emergency services, such as ambulance or fire services. Current road closure information helps these agencies provide efficient and effective services. Understanding where road closures are planned can help the public plan alternate routes or adjust their schedules accordingly. This can save time, reduce stress, and minimize disruptions in daily lives. Additionally, sharing road closures with the public can improve public safety by alerting drivers to potential hazards that may require them to slow down or take a different route.

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 mapping applications.
