Waze, Peachtree Corners partner to monitor traffic, provide alerts

Peachtree Corners is partnering with Waze, a navigation platform, to alert local motorists of traffic updates, road-construction news, street closures and more in an effort to help reduce vehicle congestion.

Designed as a two-way data sharing program of publicly available traffic information, the Waze Connected Citizens Program promotes safer travel for drivers in Peachtree Corners, along with more than 600 other partners around the world. Through the partnership, the city receives updates on real-time issues reported by users as well as traffic information for all roads in Peachtree Corners. In turn, the city will provide Waze with advance warnings of road construction, planned closures and major events. This enables Waze to better assist motorists by helping them to avoid road closures and arrive at their destinations faster and more safely.
