Add draw bridges to reporting options
I live in Seattle and we have half a dozen draw bridges in the area. The Waze app has led me to be stuck and waiting for bridges to go down on more than one occasion, so it would be great if Wazers could report when the bridges go up and when they go back down.

This is also a major problem in East Boston, either entering or exiting. There are 2 bridges that cross the Chelsea creek into and out of “Eastie”. They are the only way in and out, other than lengthy and time-consuming routes. When one bridge is up, it takes anywhere from 10 to sometimes 30 minutes to come back down and open for traffic. The problem is that motorists can’t see which way the ships are going, and often try to get to the other one before it goes up. Sometimes unnecessarily, sometimes they don’t make it which makes it twice as bad. Rarely can a driver make it across the second bridge in time. They are only 1/2 mile apart. If the app could inform motorists approximate times that the bridge went up or down, and which way the ships are traveling, it would help them to decide whether it would be a wiser decision to wait it out, or if they can safely make it to the other bridge in time. The interactive feature would work well, as motorists waiting at a drawbridge don’t have much else to do, and Eastie residents & commuters share equally, the misery of these two bridges and their ***** ships.
Should already be reported as traffic jam/complete standstill ... no?
