Nice thing about Yosemite is that there are only four entrances, and two of those are open year-round and rarely closed. So it's fairly easy to keep track of the roads that DO close such as Glacier Point or Tioga.

That's exactly the problem, it's just a penalty. For instance, when the Level 1 dude broke Wawona Road, Waze tried to route over Glacier Point. Even though Glacier Point doesn't go through to the valley (unless you drive off the cliff at the end), and even though it had a turn restriction.

Anywho, as of now, all four entrances have been split at the ranger stations and only the fork going into the park is Toll. If you see any others, feel free to kill them. :)

I noticed many of the roads had the toll marker set which is not true, so I started turning that off when I realized you might have set that originally to try to control the winter closure. Or maybe it was someone before you.

We should be able to use Time Restricted segments for the portions of the road that are closed during the winter, rather than disconnecting the road itself. I know there have been some reported problems around time restrictions, so we might need to do some testing up here to be sure it is working as designed.


Some of the roads actually DID have time restrictions on them...such as Glacier Point Road, and Waze was still routing onto it. Disconnecting is just the most reliable way. As far as the tolls, I did remove all I could find except for the small entrance segments into the park which should stay. If you found any I missed, thanks for getting rid of them. :)

Errors routing to / through Yosemite Valley via Hwy 120

Postby Borgholio » Sat Oct 05, 2013 3:53 am

There is some routing weirdness in the Yosemite Valley.

Routing from the Los Angeles Area to most destinations in the Valley itself is fine. Routing from anyplace on the East side of Tioga Pass (Lee Vining, June Lake, Bishop, etc...) fails.

Routing from the East side of Tioga to places on the other side of the Yosemite Park that DON'T go through the Valley (Wawona Hotel) is fine.

The only major difference between routing to the Valley and going past the Valley to Wawona is a left turn on Big Oak Road which leads down to the Valley. Coming from the East side of Tioga requires the left turn on Big Oak, while coming from Los Angeles takes a different road into the Valley.

So there's something up in the area of Big Oak road, but I can't find it. Anybody else able to lend a second pair of eyes? Thanks!
