Methods and systems are described for routing and/or rerouting vehicles based on predicted route blockages, such as pre-scheduled stops by delivery vehicles or other wide vehicles. In an exemplary embodiment, a system such as a navigation server obtains information including a scheduled stop location of a first vehicle, such as a delivery truck, and a predicted time during which the first vehicle is predicted to be at the stop location. The system further obtains information regarding an initial route of a second vehicle. The system determines whether the first vehicle would block the route of the second vehicle and, if so, the system computes an alternate route for the second vehicle.
