Bridge altitude

I've create a small city route - - which I take often and was what proposed some months ago. 

Now the bridge seems to be marked at river altitude and because of steepness, it does not propose anymore this route. Is this something you can do about or is something missing/wrong on the OSM base data?

That’s an interesting one! I wonder if the bridge has been shortened a bit in OSM – it’s currently showing as 170m long and only gives bridges special elevation treatment from 200m upwards. Even then, the bridge approaches are on embankments which probably aren’t reflected in the elevation data. I’ll take a look but I think we might be running up against the limits of the elevation data here.
