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.

Due to the Rim Fire burning in Yosemite National Park, part of the road through the park on the Sierra Cascades Route is closed.

For current closures and alternate routes, see the Yosemite National Park page:

From the Riding Conditions on this map section:

"...the unpaved roads can be dirt, sand, and/or hard packed gravel."

I believe I've read reports that indicate the dirt sections are pretty awful to near unrideable when wet.

You might try checking out what the states you are traveling through have for bicycling and/or suitability maps to help you determine decent roads to ride. Suitability maps are ones the show things like shoulder width, presence of rumble strips and traffic volumes in any combination.

Hope this helps,

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.


There is a bridge out west of Gatesville on SR 137. It is not likely to be replaced until 2014.

A detour around the closure is as follows:

SB: From [D] in Gatesville continue north on SR 37. At "Y" in 1.6 mi., bear left onto US 158, then in 1.2 mi., turn left onto Harrells Church Rd., then in 2.1 mi., turn left onto Turner Rd., then in 0.7 mi., turn right onto SR 137 rejoining route. In 6 mi, continue narrative at [E].

NB: From [E], continue east on SR 137. In 6 mi, turn left onto Turner Rd., then in 0.7 mi., turn right onto Harrells Church Rd., then in 2.1 mi., turn acute right onto US 158, then in 1.2 mi. continue straight on US 158, SR 37 joins route. Rejoin route. In 1.6 mi., continue narrative at [D].


A bridge is being replaced on Stagecoach Trail north of Afton. Updates on the project and a map of the posted detour are available from Washington County on the following page:

This will be in effect until September.



KY 36 remains closed west of Carrollton, KY and no official date for reopening the road has been set.

I know this information is too late for the original poster, but just in case someone else is looking to contact Silo Park Campground near Clarksville, MO, here is the correct phone number:

Army Corps of Engineers Rivers Project Office (COE) 636-899-2600


Alberta and British Columbia also have road conditions websites that may have some useful information for checking status through this time:


British Columbia:

And here's another site:


I heard from Monterey County and they estimate the work will be completed and bike path reopened by 3pm on Thursday, June 27.


I have received two other suggested reroutes around this closure.

1) Aguajito Rd.

Basic instructions:

Northbound: Exit SR 1 at #399A/SR 68, before entering SR 68, turn right onto Aguajito Rd. In approximately 4 miles, Aguajito Rd. ends at a signal. Turn left towards downtown on Fremont St. and rejoin route at Abrego St.

Southbound: From Abrego St., turn left onto Fremont St. Before it enters SR 1, turn right toward Fairgrounds onto unsigned Agujito St. In approximately 4 miles, Aguajito St. ends. Turn right, ride over SR 68. Turn left and enter SR 1 SB and rejoin route.

2) Follow the coastline.

Info from Monterey County: Cyclists could take a long, but flat and scenic route along the coastline of the Monterey Peninsula by riding the Monterey Bay Coastal trail along the coastline through Monterey and Pacific Grove to Ocean View Blvd, following Ocean View Blvd along the coastline through Pacific Grove, and using 17 Mile Drive through Pebble Beach to Carmel-by-the-Sea. The segment of 17 Mile Drive between the Lodge at Pebble Beach and the Carmel by-the-Sea city limits is narrow, with a good amount of vehicle traffic, so may or may not be advisable for some cyclists.

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.
