Lane closure reports made easy
I'd like a report button that would indicate lane closures.
Could press to report the beginning of the lane closure, then press again to report the end.
Then you indicate whether it's the left, right, or center lane.
Great thinking! We’ll share with the team; they’re always interested in new feature ideas.

In many cases there is a need to close a certain direction/turn in a junction right now.
But the only possibility today is a TBR which is valid only after a map build.
The RT closure option is only for segments.
So, I suggest to add RTR (Real Time Restriction) to directions/turns in junctions.
Example: Consider a T or + junction that only the middle of the junction is closed or blocked, so that you can keep on straight ahead or turn right, but cannot turn left. In this case we cannot use RT closure because there is no segment to close, only the left turns need to be restricred.
Able to click on a road or a bridge to indicate that it is closed. In fact, I lost 15 minutes on a recent trip because a bridge was closed.
Need ability to show lane closures for construction and accidents. include the ability to indicate which lanes are closed, i.e., left 2 lanes are closed.

As it is now, I have to be routed to USE a certain segment to request its closure. Why can't I close ANY road I see closed, even if I'm not routing onto it? I've taken detours JUST to make the app route me on it, JUST to enter a closure.
At the moment not all blocked roads are visible marked on the maps.
Only if you open the Waze editor you'll see if it's blocked.
Please make all closed and blocked roads visible.
If there's already a suggestion about that, i'm sorry, i didn't found it...
The closest thing you have is "Construction" "On Road"
I searched for "Lane Closure" but it's missing. Traffic can get backed up quickly when there's a lane closure, so it's important to let drivers know that it's coming up.
In my area, there are a lot of roadworks that block only one side of the streets, often for days, weeks, or even months. They put barriers and signs blocking trafic in 1 direction only.
Now if I want to report it, the only way is "Road closure" but it blocks in both ways for navigation.
Could there be a way to report this only one way?
It would allow the navigation to use the street in the still open direction instead of taking big detours.
I pass by the same construction zone every 45 minutes and my previous posting has expired. This is an all day construction zone with lane closures. I would post which lane was closed if I only had to do it once or twice a day.

My highway ends at a fork umable to list closed sliproad between two highways.
I can currently only enter road closures for side street/intersections at the left or right of me. Not for the opposite direction of the road that I am on or a closure ahead if me.
I pass by closed streets & if I'm 1 street past I'm prevented from adding the closure. This makes this app somewhat useless if street closures can't be logged. Allow all streets and intersections in a wider radius around my location to be edited.

I would like to see the one-way streets and time restrictions in the client. Sometimes you're wondering if Waze is being weird or is avoiding a road because a one-way street and since a few days time restrictions.
Time restrictions could show a little clock on the side of the road, which you can press to show more info. One-way streets are simple - just a few arrows one way or the other.
Add ability to show which lane is closed for construction areas and accidents. Possibly on the map a right or left arrow can be posted to notify later drivers.
Often when there is road construction and/or maintenance, there are lane closures which impact the traffic pattern. It would be great if we could identify a hazard that reports a lane closure (which is separate from a road closure).
Need a single lane for construction option

It would be good if they put how long it would be closed for as well

This is desperately needed in Los Angeles there so many street and freeway closures

Is there a way to report a closed freeway exit? There's a way to report a closed street but I can't seem to report a closed freeway exit.
Vic Ying commented
I mean there should be a way to report a closed freeway exit.

other POI or reports would benefit from range parameter (carpool crossing lines, lane endings, icy road)
