Waze to route Philadelphia drivers around major closures

Ah labor day! Is there any better way to close out the summer than a long weekend full of gatherings and events?

One of the bigger labor day events this year is the Budweiser Made in America Festival taking in place in Philadelphia. This exciting event brings thousands of festival-goers to the streets of Philly, blocking up a huge part of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and other surrounding streets. You don’t have to be a local to know that this means big traffic jams and major slow downs for drivers in the city.

The good news is that Waze is on the case! Thanks to our devoted community, Waze’s maps have been updated to route drivers around the closures giving them the fastest possible route to their destinations. Wazers in Philadelphia can also check in with our traffic center for real-time updates on all traffic in the city.

If you’re travelling elsewhere this labor day, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday and a safe trip.
And of course, if you know of any other events that are sure to affect traffic in your city, let us know here. We may be able to help!
