Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Adirondack Park Loop - 2011
« on: August 30, 2011, 10:24:10 am »
Flooding around Lake Placid and on the Ausable River will impact services and riding conditions on this route. See this article for more information:


As of July 25th, 2011, south of Banff, Goat Creek Trail is closed:

Goat Creek Trail and vicinity: Effective immediately, the Goat Creek Trail is closed from the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Road (Highway 742) to its junction with the Spray River Trail in Banff National Park. The closure is due to structural damage to the Spray River bridge which has resulted from abnormally high flows due to water diversion by TransAlta Utilities. For further information regarding water flows, please contact TransAlta at 1-877-547-3365.

This information is from the Alberta National Parks page:

We've also had a report of Spray Lakes W. Rd. being closed but cannot find confirmation.

Contact Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation for alternate routing information


Road construction on SR 2 between Havre and Harlem makes riding difficult to impassable. You may want to hitch a ride through here if you can.

Check the Montana DOT road conditions map to watch progress:


We received a report that CR 7 is closed to through traffic, there is nothing on the Minnesota DOT site so it is not clear how long this will be in effect. CR 3 to the east appears to be the best detour.

edit to add:

I just received a recommendation of another way around this closure:

Highly recommend Great River Off Road trail btw Winona and La Crosse. Is dirt but flat/bare. Avoid Hwy 7 mess.

I don't have more specifics than that, but the map on this page might be helpful:


Just outside of Shawano, the SR 22 bridge over Wolf River is closed due to construction. It should be complete by the end of 2011. For the most current informatio, see Wisconsin's 511 page:

Detour instructions SEbound:
33.5(54)Turn right onto Rose Brook Rd. * 35.5(57)Turn left onto SR 22. *36.5(59)Turn right onto CR CC. (add 0.5 mi. to remaining narrative directions)

Detour instructions NWbound:
* 5(8)Turn lefo onto SR 22. *6(10)Turn right onto Rose Brook Rd. *8(13)Turn left onto CR M. 15.5(25)Turn left following CR M. (add 0.5 mi. to remaining narrative directions)


It appears that the campgrounds in Pierre, SD are closed due to flooding. We are unsure how long this will continue, call campgrounds ahead to check status.

We've been informed there are two detours on TransAm section 12, map 148.

1) Willis Church Rd. near the Malvern Hill Battlefield. Take posted detour. Scheduled to be completed by December 2011.
2) SR 156 within 4 miles of Mechanicsville. Take posted detour. No word on completion date.

These detours will take you away from some services, be sure to carry water and snacks with you.


Due to increased flooding and collapsing levees, parts of the Lewis & Clark route in Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas are not accessible. We know that Hamburg, Iowa, Atchison, Kansas and the Steamboat Trace specifically have been affected. To keep tabs on the situation, please check the individual state Department of Transportation websites. Links to those sites are listed here:

Once you arrive at the site, look for links to Travel Advisories or 5-1-1 information.

Steamboat Trace status is found here:


Due to an eroding roadway/shoulder, River Rd. is closed. Riding southbound, there is a posted detour on Oberly Rd. from Carpentersville Rd. which will return you to River Rd. Riding northbound, the detour is signed on River Rd. and will return you to Carpentersville Rd. near I-78. It is unknown how long this detour will be in place.


We were just alerted to a road closure due to construction in Kendall County, Texas. A bridge is being replaced on Zoeller Ln. You can detour around closure.

Eastbound: From Waring, ride 3.1 mi. N. on Waring Welfare Rd., then 3.2 mi. E on Rd. 473 to rejoin route at Zoeller Ln.
Westbound: At Rd. 473 and Zoeller Ln. junction, continue W. on Rd. 473 for 3.2 mi., then 3.1 mi. S. on Waring Welfare Rd to Waring and rejoin route.


We have just been alerted to a closure due to bridge repair on SR 30, south of Vincent. This will likely continue until July 31. There is a detour posted on SR 846 and 11 to return to the route in Booneville. It is approximately 16 miles.

We  just received a report from the road on Underground Railroad Section 1, Map 14.

Smithville Mississippi was hit pretty hard by the April 27 tornado. The gas station is the only building left standing, don't expect any services to be avaible. Red Cross and FEMA are in the area and the road is closed from 7:30 pm to 6:00 am.


The St. Marks Trail out of Tallahassee, south of (SR 319) to Woodville is closed for resurfacing. The detour is to ride on SR 363.  It has a four foot shoulder and smooth pavement. We received this information from our Southern Tier Tour leader. To stay up to date on the situation, you can check the following website:
