O Rly? The thread. That route wouldn't work if that were the case.

Does that route qualify as a "long route"? It's 106 km on the route that uses the Primary Street. According to the info in cbenson's post, it does and should not be possible. Obviously that nanorep info is wrong...nothing new there, but more wrong than we ever thought it was.

I'm getting lost now...To recap what I've observed, the problem was originally that it was avoiding the Service Road segment. I mistakenly said that the Service Road was treated as a Primary Street...but was corrected in that it is treated like a regular Street. So did we ever actually try setting it as Primary Street? Obviously if the Service Road (not even mentioned in cbenson's table) is treated as a Street, it would make this route not work on a long route.

I just tried to look at it on the map again, but it seems that the original segment ID no longer exists and the permalink isn't centered on it.

Yes the entire "service road" was changed to primary street type. That did not solve the problem. ... s=49823859
