Chargers accessible from only one direction of an Interstate

Question

I've found a public charger near me that is only (easily) accessible from one direction of the interstate, and I suspect there are others.  Is there a way to have ABRP calculate the directions more accurately when approaching from the 'wrong' direction.

Here's the example.

On Northbound I-81, crossing from Pennsylvania into New York, there's a free charger at the New York Welcome Center.  If you're headed North, using that charger adds basically no time or distance to your route.  When headed South, it's not nearly so easy (but ABRP acts as though it is).  To make use of that charger headed South without making an illegal u-turn, you would need to go past it to PA exit 230, come back NB on I-81, charge, continue NB to NY Exit 1 and then get back on SB I-81.  That's approximately a 12 mile circle.  It's still probably the best charging option in that area, but ABRP should calculate in the time, distance and consumption involved.

This is probably a problem with the Open Street Map there, if you click on the route you should see an "edit in Open Street Map" button:

Where you can make sure it's showing it properly as a split-lane highway, and submit edits to have it done properly.
