Placement of hot mix asphalt overlay on 3 ½ miles of existing highway continues from about 12 miles south of Big Sur just north of Burns Creek Bridge to south of Partington Ridge Road. One-way traffic control is in effect with daytime work hours tomorrow, Oct. 29 and overnight work next week from 6 pm to 6 am. Work is scheduled to complete by Friday, Nov. 5, weather permitting.

Construction on a retaining wall project near Gamboa Point, three miles north of Lucia is completed including striping. Traffic continues down to one lane just south of Lucia at Dani Creek with a temporary signal in place for soundwall installation. Work hours are from 7 am to 5 pm daily with work expected to be completed at the end of summer of 2011. Cyclists traveling southbound are required to press the signal button to activate a longer period to safely get through the narrow one-way uphill section.

The temporary signal about two miles south of Lucia at Pitkins Curve/Rain Rocks for the bridge/rockshed project remains in operation 24/7 with the project expected to be complete in winter 2012/2013.

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY: No projects currently under construction along this stretch in SLO County.

FR 175 is closed from Mile 154.9(249.3) to Mile 161.8(260.5) at Morning Glory Mine due to heavy truck traffic and construction. This will continue until November 1.

The Mt. Vernon Trail between Mt. Vernon and Arlington appears to be undergoing some construction and improvements with sections sporadically closed. The roads parallel to the trail are not heavily trafficked and may be used as an alternative throughout the summer.


On Sierra Cascades Section 4, Maps 45 & 46, there is road construction on SR 89 between Meyers and Luther Pass leaving only minimal gravel shoulders. Some of the construction can be bypassed by using S. Upper Truckee Rd. from Meyers southward until it intersects SR 89.


The Tecolote and South Fork Fires in New Mexico have closed some roads on the between Abiquiu and Cuba. Alternate routing on State Highway 96 and US Highway 550 may be necessary.

A Fire Information Center has been set up at the Pecos/Las Vegas Ranger District, contact number 505-425-3534.


The city of Black Hawk, Colorado has prohibited bicycles from being ridden on most of their roads, including those used on Great Parks South, Section 1, Map 7. Tickets are regularly issued for violating this law. Our suggestion is to walk your bike the distance across town, ~ 0.5 miles.

We have been alerted by Rocky Mountain National Park that major road construction will be occurring the park this summer and possibly into next summer. There is no detour, riders should expect delays. This affects the route on Maps 4 and 5.

From the NPS website:
Cyclists Should Expect Extremely Rough Road Conditions Due To Major Roadwork On Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park During this summer and possibly the summer of 2011, a major resurfacing project is taking place on a 19 mile section of Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park from the Colorado River Trailhead to Rainbow Curve. This project will also involve resurfacing of all major overlook parking areas, pull offs and the parking lot at Alpine Visitor Center.

Park visitors can expect 20 to 30 minute delays through the construction area on Trail Ridge Road. There may be multiple areas of construction occurring concurrently, and in that case the combined delay time will not exceed 60 minutes. There may be some temporary night closures as well, which will likely occur sometime after mid-July. Work will not take place on weekends or holidays. Cyclists and motorcyclists should expect extremely rough road conditions throughout the summer. Because weather conditions may change rapidly, park visitors should be prepared to adjust travel plans accordingly and are encouraged to call the park’s Trail Ridge Road recorded phone line at (970) 586-1222 for the current status of the road. Park staff will update the recorded line during and after regular office hours, when the road status changes. For further information about Rocky Mountain National Park please contact the park information office at (970) 586-1206 or check the park’s website at
