There is a bridge closure (for repairs) on CR PP between SR 32/57 and the town of Potter. 
See this link for a reroute:   https://goo.gl/maps/mnbrXDJyP6B2

For more information, go to the Calumet County website: http://www.co.calumet.wi.us/index.aspx?NID=164

SR 187 is closed for resurfacing between the Shawano/Outagamie county line and SR 54 (Shiocton).  It is expected to be reopened Aug 2016. 

As far as we know, the signed detour should be OK for riding.  Please update here if that is not so.

For more information see: http://projects.511wi.gov/weeklyupdates-ne/

In the detail section of Map 86, the ramp and path that go from Ocean Drive to A1A are closed for improvements, including a bicycle friendly riding surface. The bridge is expected to be closed until some time in April. 

See this Google map for a detour:  https://goo.gl/maps/z6HxYFPc3Wm

We have gotten a report saying that the closed road can be very muddy (1-2 in. deep)  for about 5 mi (8km) south of mile 81.6 (131.3).

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that Burnham Avenue will be fully closed to traffic at the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation
District’s South Shore Line tracks, just south of Brainard Avenue, for repairs to the railroad crossing, beginning, weather permitting, at 8 a.m. Monday, Sept. 14.
The project will be complete by 7 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 26.

To get around this road closure, from Avenue O on the north side of the construction, take 126th St., Torrance Ave., Cleveland Ave. to meet back up with the Burnham Greenway Trail just north of turn E on Map 1.  See this link for a map of the detour:

Use caution on Torrance Ave., especially on the bridges.  Walk bike on sidewalk if needed.

For further information on road closure, go to this website: http://www.idot.illinois.gov/about-idot/stay-connected/news-releases/Construction/releases

Old Route 66 is closed to traffic at Funks Grove to rebuild the bridge over Timber Creek. The work is scheduled for completion on Oct. 31.  See this website for more information: http://www.gettingaroundillinois.com/gai.htm?mt=cons

See the following link for a detour. 

The shorter route is only 0.5 mi. longer than the mapped route, but uses 0.3 mi. of dirt road.
The longer route is 2 mi. longer than the mapped route and is all on paved roads.

At the south end of the Riverfront Trail in St. Louis, the route is closed while they are working on extending the bike path and elevating it help with flooding.  There should be detour signs, but here is a detour description:

WB: At turn H on Map 14, after riding onto Lewis St., ride 0.1 mi. then turn right onto Biddle St.  In 0.2 mi., ride under I-44, then turn left onto Broadway.  In 1.5 mi., turn right to rejoin route on at Broadway and Chouteau Ave. on Section 2, Map 15.

EB: On Section 2 Map 15, at mile 19.8(32km), turn left onto 4th St. In 1.5 mi., ride under I-44, then turn right onto Biddle St. In 0.2 mi., turn left onto Lewis St. and rejoin route on Section 1 Map 14.

To get to the Arch, turn east on Chestnut St. (at the Old Courthouse) from either Broadway or 4th St.   While construction is going on, if you want to go to the top of the arch, tickets must be bought online or at the Old Courthouse.

During rush hour or events, Broadway and 4th St. can be busy.  If you are uncomfortable riding those roads, here is another alternate that takes you further away from the Arch. 

WB: At turn H on Map 14, after riding onto Lewis St., ride 0.1 mi. then turn right onto Biddle St.  In 0.2 mi., ride under I-44, then turn left onto Broadway.  In 0.1 mi. turn right onto Cole St. In 0.6 mi., turn left onto 14th St. In 1.2 mi., turn right to rejoin route on at 14th St. and Chouteau Ave. on Section 2, Map 15.

EB: On Section 2 Map 15, at mile 19.2(31km), turn left onto 14th St. In 1.2 mi., turn right onto Cole St. In 0.6 mi., ride under I-44, then turn right onto 3rd St. In 0.1 mi., turn right onto Biddle St.  In 0.2 mi., turn left onto Lewis St. and rejoin route on Section 1 Map 14.

The bridge on SR 173 near Cochranton (over French Creek) is closed for construction. 

Here are two possible detours:
https://goo.gl/maps/SgvKZ (between Milledgeville and Cochranton)
https://goo.gl/maps/JQXQU (between Meadville and across the river from Cochranton)

PennDOT says they will get more info on http://www.511pa.com/ soon.

There is road construction along US 101 in Lincoln City between SE 23rd and SW 35th Streets.  The road should stay open, but if traffic and conditions seem unsafe to ride through, here is an alternate to get around most of the construction: https://goo.gl/maps/ofQ6c

For more information, see: http://www.lincolncity.org/index.asp?SEC=B14682C2-5B25-4C8F-8277-43023548C40E&DE=3268BB98-D7F9-42CF-BB41-F120A8627056&Type=B_PR

Pavement is being replaced on I-84 for 1 mile east of turn A (MP 87 to 88).   
From May 22 to September 7th, 2015 Eastbound I-84 will have the typical 10 ft. shoulder available throughout the project.
Westbound will have 10 foot shoulders available for all but 0.5 miles of the project, where it will be down to a 4 foot shoulder.
From September 8th of 2015 to Memorial Day of 2016 only 4 foot shoulders will be maintained throughout the project.

Use extreme caution if taking this main route.   Also consider taking US 197 to the Washington Option.  To get across the Columbia River, walk your bike over the bridge on the east sidewalk, as there is no shoulder on this bridge.

Routes / Re: Route 66 between Kelbaker Rd and Essex
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:47:07 am »
Thanks for the note, Todd.

For the record, though, while it may be possible to get through on National Trails Hwy between Essex and Kelbaker Rd. during dry weather, this road is still officially closed and we cannot recommend it.  Also note that trying to ride this section in wet weather could be very dangerous.   

Safe travels indeed.

On the Hell's Gate Option, Webb Rd. is closed for construction.  Use Lapwai Alternate and River Option instead. 

For more information, see: http://www.co.nezperce.id.us/ElectedOfficials/Commissioners/WebbRoadReconstruction.aspx

Construction on a bridge will close the road just north of turn I, starting May 11, 2015.  Construction is scheduled to be completed November 16, 2015.  For more information, go to: http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/culpeper/rt677bridge.asp

A possible reroute:
EB: At F, Continue straight on Garth Rd./CR 614. In 5 mi., turn right onto Old Garth Rd./CR 601. At stop sign in 2 mi., at the stop sign, continue straight onto Old Ivy Rd./CR 601.  In 1 mi., bear left onto Ivy Rd./US 250 to rejoin route.  Mileage remains the same.

WB: At junction of Ivy Rd./US 250 and Old Ivy Rd - 13(21km) – bear right onto Old Ivy Rd.  At stop sign in 1 mi., continue straight onto Old Garth Rd./CR 601. In 0.5 mi. bear right to continue on Old Garth Rd./CR 601. In 2 mi., turn left onto Garth Rd./CR 601. In 5 mi., continue straight to rejoin route at F.  Mileage remains the same.

General Discussion / Re: My dog wants to go with me
« on: February 02, 2015, 11:55:23 am »
Hi scott362,

I use the K9 cruiser with my dog:
http://www.k9cruiser.com/

It has worked great to keep my dog out from under my tires, and she also has much less leverage to pull me over.  She is under 20 lbs.  (a Jack Russell Terrier), but has been very peppy and likes to energetically try to dart off after things.  When I used to just hold her by a leash, she would pull me over when she did this.  But with the K9 cruiser she has been unable to pull me over. 
The woman I bought the K9 cruiser from (2nd hand), had used it with a medium sized black lab, and told me it worked great with him too. 

Not sure how well it would work with a really energetic larger dog. But if you don't find anything else, it may be worth a shot.   I have been using mine for almost 10 years and love it!

Thanks for that info Nicolai!   

We got another report that the construction area of SR 71/Sage Creek Rd. is nearly impassable if it has rained.  So consider taking the reroute if it has been wet.
