I'm trying to calculate a distance between two points within the continental US via the Routes API. I always include avoid=ferry,borderCrossing to handle certain cases near the Canadian border. In this case, I'm going from Cleveland, MS to Greensboro, NC and there should be no border crossings or ferries on the route. I expect a mileage distance of 744 miles, but get 827 miles when the avoid options are included. Remove those options and I get the expected 744 mile route. I noticed the 744 mile route includes tolls. I'm not instructing the route API to avoid tolls, but it acts like it wants to avoid tolls if I include any avoid option. Anything I can do to get the appropriate distance, while keeping the avoid options in the request? Or could this be a bug in the API?
I can reproduce the issue via the Bing Maps website as well entering these addresses and then toggling on or off different avoid options.
From: Delta State University, 1003 W Sunflower Rd, Cleveland, MS 38733
To: Greensboro Coliseum Complex, 1921 W Gate City Blvd, Greensboro, NC 27403
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
