The final stage of the new bridge over the Ohio River from Madison, IN to Milton. KY is now taking place. It is unclear when this phase will be complete. You can check the progress here: http://www.miltonmadisonbridge.com/news-center/

During the closure, you will need to take the following detour recommended by a local cyclist.

Northbound on map 35:
0(0 km)Continue straight (east) on SR 56. 20(32)Vevay. Route becomes SR 156. * 26(42)Turn left onto SR 101. Cross Ohio River, enter Kentucky. Route becomes SR 1039. * 33.5(54)Ride over I-71. SR 1039 curves left. Turn right onto Boone Rd./SR 465. * 35(56)Turn right onto Sparta Pike/SR 35. 37(59)Sparta. Rejoin route on map 36.

Southbound on map 36:
* 20.5(33)Sparta. Turn right onto Sparta Pike/SR 35. * 22.5(36)Turn left onto Boone Rd/SR 465. * 24(39)Turn left onto SR 1039. Ride over I-71. * 31.5(51)Cross Ohio River, enter Indiana. Turn right onto SR 156. 37.5(60)Vevay. Route becomes SR 56. 57.5(92)Madison. Rejoin route on map 35.

NOTE: SR 56 is not in great shape -- it is broken in places and there is no shoulder -- and you will be sharing it with 55 mph traffic. Ride with caution.

On map 16, the Three Capes Scenic Route is closed due to a landslide. We've been advised by county officials that the landslide is unstable and continuing to shift. You will need to use the Netarts Highway Alternate south of Tillamook.

It is unknown when this will be repaired.

We just received information about a rock slide on SR 1 in Big Sur, south of Andrew Molera State Park. The highway has been closed, we do not know for how long.

We recently received this report from a local cyclist in southern California. This information pertains to map panel 56:

I took a drive yesterday north of Ventura, CA specifically to check out some new Caltrans construction areas along SR-101 (aka U.S. 101) which we knew would affect cyclists along the Pacific Coast Route.

The construction area is about 10 miles south of Santa Barbara and begins (on its north end) at the Santa Barbara - Ventura County line (which is Bates Road) and extends south easterly for about 5-6 miles (i.e along south bound SR-101) to Seacliff Drive. 
 
The former south bound bike lane, which were actually located on the SR-101 roadway between those two points, currently is closed due to construction. The north bound bike lane between those two points has been somewhat rerouted but remains open behind K-rail construction barriers.

At Bates Road (i.e. the county line) exit at Bates Road and turn left, proceed under the SR 101 bridges and link up with the north bound bike path. Travel south bound on the north bound path until it rejoins the existing bike facilities about 5-6 miles south at Seacliff Drive.   

Riders should be made aware that they will be counter flowing against traffic (but behind a K-rail barrier), and that they will also be facing oncoming cyclists heading north bound along this temporary path.

We've been alerted that the border crossing shown on the Quebec Alternate (map 3) is closed. An alternate crossing is located just west of Richmond on map 2.

A possible alternate route can be found here: http://goo.gl/maps/6K4zb

The new border crossing info from Richmond is here: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/contacts/ports/vt/0203.xml
Information on the North Troy border crossing is here: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/contacts/ports/vt/0209.xml (called Derby Line)

There is a bridge out on SR H east of St. Mary. The road is closed until October 2. You must detour.

The only possibility we see for a detour is County Rd. 950 which it looks like you can access from 2nd St. Unfortunately, CR 950 is likely not paved. You may wish to ask locally for other alternatives or for a ride across unpaved stretch.

There is a bridge out between Bridgeton and Pollocksville on CR 1004. It is expected to be reopened by the end of the month.

In the meantime, you can us US 70 and US 17 between the two towns. These highways are busy but have pretty good shoulders for most of the distance.

We've received reports that there is a bike path closure in Monterey that will last until July 10.

It has been suggested that if heading southbound, you should ride from Pearl St. onto Jefferson St., to Veteran's Park, to Skyline Dr. to SR 1.

If you have other suggestions for reroute, please post. I will update this discussion if I receive further information.

.Jennifer.
