User:PesachZ/Temporary closures/Overview list
There are five methods to control traffic flow:
- Mega events
- Temporary closures
- Closures report from the client
- Partial restrictions
- Disconnect road segments
- Mega event - A major event that will typically have road closures or detours. It is usually a scheduled event with significant exposure and likely to impact an entire community. A major natural disaster can be added after it occurs if roads are going to be rerouted for many days.
Due to its' safety and visibilty, this is the preferred method for closing a road.
Editors who do not have access to add closures in WME can request a higher ranking editor to help using a designated request format, or the unlock/update request for their country. In the USA the Road Closures Form (USA) is used.
- Disconnect road segments - Road segments should only be physically disconnected if the road is no longer intended to connect or is being permanently removed. In the past, this method was used for longer term construction projects, but now the Road Closure feature should be used.
