    Can I add a line for for Route Optimization?

    This is a shot in the dark, but I figured I would ask anyways. Just some background first. I have an area that I drive around very often. A new bridge just opened. MapPoint has the 2 endpoints of the bridge currently. Obviously, it is two streets that dead end. So, I have two points to work with already in MapPoint. I was wondering if there was a way that I could trick the optimizer into thinking that these two points were connected for the purpose of route optimization? (They are 1 mile apart.)

    Re: Can I add a line for for Route Optimization?

    Simple answer is no: The road network is a "closed" system - users and developers can not read it directly, or modify it.

    If you knew you really wanted the missing road segment, you could plan your route in two sections. The first would have a destination at the beginning of the segment, and the second would have a start at the other end of the segment.
