Won't navigate across Chesapeake Bay Bridge from Eastern Shore to Annapolis

Recommended Posts

Description: No matter how I reset my route waypoints I can't make the plan go across the bridge. Route always backtracks or goes north to I 95 and back down. .
Type: Using Web version. Win 10
Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=a8445733-b129-44be-bb6c-ffbd48cb985a
Replication Steps:
  1. Ive tried clearing the plan and starting from different points.  If I start north of the eastern shore, the route gets to the bridge and then doubles back until it can get to I-95 and go down the western side.  
  2. I can't find any settings that say "Avoid large bridges"

I just ran into the exact same issue while planning a trip from DC to St Michaels and back. It will go east over the bridge, but not west.  I know there were some brief westbound lane closures scheduled for 10pm -5am August 29 - Sept 1, so maybe ABRP took that into account, but hasn't updated?

Confirmed that this is an issue that stems from the OpenStreetMap routing, and the fact that the northern span of the Chesapeake Bay bridge is identified as "one-way-reversible" (which some lanes are).  See https://github.com/Project-OSRM/osrm-backend/issues/2837

I don't know if there's a way to have ABRP use the alternative Graphhopper API, but it gives a correct route.
