We recently received the following notice regarding the closure of the Pacific Coast route through the city of Del Mar due to the heavy rains the area has received:

Quote
Greetings Bicycling Community --
...Many of you may be aware that a FULL closure of southbound (SB) Camino del Mar (aka Hwy. 101/SR 21) is in effect in the City of Del Mar between Del Mar Heights Rd. and Carmel Valley Rd.  This closure is expected for 1-2 months.  Northbound traffic is still allowed in this segment, including bicyclists-- of course.  A detour has been established for SB vehicles-- SB Camino del Mar to eastbound (EB) Del Mar Heights Rd./4th St. to I-5 SB to westbound (WB) Carmel Valley Rd. and then back to SB Camino del Mar (Hwy. 101).   
There are several options for bicyclists to detour around the closure.  One that has been established for bicyclists is the shortest route which follows 4th St./ Del Mar Heights Rd eastbound to Mango Dr./ Portofino Dr. and then to WB Carmel Valley Rd. to Camino del Mar.  Extreme grades are present along that detour.  There are other routes available including EB Via de la Valle to SB El Camino Real to WB Carmel Valley Rd.-- a route that includes less intense grades than the proposed detour, but may not include dedicated bike lanes in all segments.  Vigilance by all cyclists is advised in all cases.  It should be noted that wrong-way driving on a bicycle is dangerous and against the California Vehicle Code. Detours should be followed and all cyclists should adhere to California Code.

We just received notice of this bridge closure and the KY DOT recommended detour:

Quote
Between Mercer, Garrard County Line and Breezy Way. The bridge is closed. The road is closed for repairs. A detour is in operation. See map for detour(s). For the next six months.

The Kennedy Mill Bridge on KY 152 at the Garrard Co/Mercer Co line is blocked. From the Garrard Co side to the Mercer Co side, motorists can take KY 152 East to US 27 South to KY 34 West to KY 2168 West to KY 33 North back to KY 152 East. From Mercer to Garrard, take KY 152 West to KY 33 South to KY 2168 East to KY 34 East to US 27 North to back to KY 152 West.

We just received this notice from Reno County, Kansas of a bit of road construction that has closed a road on the TransAm:

There is not a signed detour; However there are road closed ahead signs posted at the closest pave road intersections  on the east and west side of the project with both of them only going south of 82nd Ave. If they wish to stay on paved roads to bypass this project; going west on 82nd, turn south on Hendricks St. to 56th Ave then turn West on 56th to Yaggy Rd then Turn North on Yaggy Rd back to 82nd ; going East on 82nd, turn south on Yaggy Rd to 56th Ave. then turn East of 56th Ave. to Hendricks St. then Turn North on Hendricks to 82nd.  This project is schedule to be completed on July 24, 2015 subject to weather.

We just received this notice:

Cave-in-Rock ferry (TransAm/Kentucky/Illinois/Ohio River) was closed due to flooding/high water. Since 2.5-3 inches of rain are expected tomorrow [3.13.15]will be added to melt water from snow north of there....they expect it to be closed for at least a week.

Call 618-289-4599 to check status.

SR 200/A1A will be undergoing construction in stages over the next couple of years.

1) The section of SR 200/A1A from Still Quarters east to Rubin Lane will begin construction this fall.  [2014]

2) The SR 200 from Rubin Lane east to CR 107 is tentatively scheduled for construction beginning in Late 2015/Early 2016.

3) The Section from Still Quarters west to I-95 will start construction late 2016/early 2017.

Still Quarters Rd is just west of US 17; Rubin Lane is east of US 17 near the intersection of SR200/A1A and Miner Rd.  CR 107 [SR 107 on the map] is also called Old Nassauville Rd. 

For stages 1 and 2, Pages Dairy Rd. can provide a feasible detour around some of the work. Southbound Pages Dairy Rd. ends at Chester Rd., turn right onto Chester Rd. then left onto SR 200/A1A. Northbound turn right onto Chester Rd. then left onto Pages Dairy Rd. Turn right onto SR 200/A1A.

For stage 3 there is not currently a clear detour to avoid the construction.

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.
