Use RTC history to create new RTC on the same segments
It would be very convenient to be able to re-create a RTC based on the RTC history for one or more segments. This would also require being able to choose to select all segments that were included in the original RTC, as well as optionally proposing start / end times.
Two use case examples:
1) Recurring RTCs where the schedule is not known far in advance
For example, there is nightly road construction on a given highway, but this may not repeat every night for various reasons. The actual closure is only published a few hours before, and so requires editors to scramble to implement it. This feature would save quite a bit of time.
2) Recently expired RTC
For example, an editor closes a road for a few hours after a major accident, but the closure actually lasts longer than expected. In order to quickly re-create the expired closure, this feature could be used.
Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.

Closure is put in for planned roadwords. Then, for one of the days, the construction is postponed for another day.

It can be a real pain to have to reselect a group of segments, especially when there are small segments that you have to zoom way in to select. (And using alt-click to multiselect doesn't always work . . . )
