6/27/22: WAZE AND GOOGLE ARE SHOWING WEEKEND ROAD CLOSURES, AS TOWN MANAGER REQUESTED, EDITOR CONFIRMS.

MrNicGuy has confirmed that Town Manager Cliff Ogburn’s road closures on summer weekends have appeared on Waze and Google apps, as the Town Manager has requested. The “lapse” that we referred to in blog and Facebook comments originated with MrNicGuy, not the Town.

The Town is a Waze for Cities partner, so it has the ability to close roads in the Waze app at will, and those closures go over to Google maps.

MrNicGuy is in Virginia. He said he is “having discussions with N.C. Waze editors on how we can help further.”

So . . . the Town Manager’s closure requests have been and will continue to be honored. We apologize for causing any undue ruckus by reporting on MrNicGuy’s email and not contacting the Town Manager. Haste makes waste. But now we know at least one Waze map editor is reading The Beacon traffic reports.
