Planning trips on potentially closed roads

Question

I am trying to plan a route in the famous Swedish road called Vildmarksvägen between Jämtland and Lappland. This road is the highest paved road in Sweden so during most of the year the road is closed due to snow. And it will normally be open during summer. Now when I plan a route I am not able to make it use the whole Vildmarksvägen. The route is turning back and making a long long redirection to reach the targtet. 
 

The question is if there is any way to force the planning to use roads that the tool thinks is closed. Maybe by setting some start date (not just start time) for the trip.

Hi @Mats,

Could you post the link to this plan so that we can see where it decides to turn back? I could then look into what info Open Street Map has on this road until / after this point.

There's unfortunately no way to 'force' the route if the map data we've got says it is impossible to take this route.

Hi @Mats,

Thanks! Most of this road is tagged with a seasonal closure in OSM. This is something we currently cannot handle and therefore it is only interpreted as 'open'. This isn't what causes this error but it is worth to note, since we might try to route you through seasonally closed roads at the moment. We are looking into ways to address this.

I found the part of the route which we could not pass. Parts of 'Jormvägen' was tagged with 'vehicle = no' in OSM and therefore not accessible when planning with a car in OSM or plannig in ABRP. I've now had this changed and instead simply set the usual conditional access like the rest of Vildmarksvägen instead. It'll however take 1-2 weeks before we've had the maps processed and updated but this should correct it.

Problematic part as seen in OSM:

Hi

Thank you for your help with this. I can then try to plan my summer holiday route in a couple of weeks as I understand it. 
 

Thanks again!
