I’ve moved pretty much full time to Waze as my GPS. On a recent drive to the airport in Omaha, everyone was giving me a detour (due to flooding on I-29) that added 30 minutes to the drive; Waze gave me a route that was only about 5 minutes longer. I use it because it seem to be up to date, almost in real time, on road condition, outages, etc.
So I have to make a drive down to KC early tomorrow morning, and I looked at Waze to see the route it came up with due to I-29 closures south of Omaha. Looked like a good route, but just to be safe I checked the Missouri DOT road conditions map. Waze has me traveling on a long stretch of I-29 that the MODOT map has as being completely under water and closed.
I checked Google Maps (and I do know the connection) and it gave me a couple of choices, with the preferred one being different than Waze but also using miles of highway that is clearly closed (and has been for at least a couple of weeks.)
I checked online, and that stretch of road is indeed closed.
Any idea why both Google Maps and Waze have no idea this long stretch of highway is closed?
