Road Closures is a configuration of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS that can be used by engineers and operations staff to track roadblocks or closures set up to control or block traffic along a road. Road closures and related detours are typically defined by a transportation department, and/or emergency management agency during special events, public safety incidents, and construction activities.

Road Closures is a configuration of ArcGIS, and optionally WebEOC from Intermedix, that can be used to track specific information surrounding road closures (status, impacted locations, etc.). The road closure maps can be embedded on your website and shared with the general public. This information can also be proactively shared with consumer navigation and traffic applications (ex. Waze) that are used daily by citizens in your community.
