The St. Francisville ferry has been shut down and the new Audubon bridge southeast of the ferry opened on May 5th. It is located about 3.4 mi. downriver from the ferry location. You do not need to go into St. Francisville to reach the bridge - the access is on US 61. We do not yet have directions on how to reach the bridge, please ask locally.

The Morganza Spillway was opened on May 14 to divert the Mississippi River floodwaters away from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. It is located just northwest of the town of Morganza on Section 5 map 78. At this time the road over the Spillway remains open. Call the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff to get up-to-date information.

Geologic instability and debris falling on Hwy. 1 at Alder Creek (just north of the Monterey/San Luis Obispo County line) have closed the roadway completely in both directions. It will be 4-6 weeks before the road is open again. Here are several sites to refer to for updates:

There is a bridge out on Archie Wheat Rd. It should be repaired by 4/1/11. For a detour eastbound riders should continue on Old Camp Rd. to SR 26, turn left, then immediately turn left onto Holden Rd. and return to the route. Westbound riders should continue on Holden Rd. to SR 26, turn right, then immediately turn right onto Old Camp Rd. and return to the route. Do not stay on SR 26 as it carries high levels of traffic and is unsafe for bicyclists.

On SR 126, the Barton County bridge over the North Fork of Spring River is being replaced. This road will be closed starting 3/7/11 and will be closed for 54 days.

Zion Road Construction Schedule

Superintendent Jock Whitworth has announced that reconstruction of the Zion-Mt Carmel Highway will begin June 1, 2010 and end October 28, 2010. The road construction will occur from the junction of the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive to the East Entrance, a distance of 9.5 miles, including The Switchbacks. Delays and closures will occur Monday through Thursday, with Friday through Sunday open for regular traffic. The construction will not impact Zion Canyon, the most visited area of the park.

Bicycles and pedestrians will be prohibited in the construction zone. Bicyclists and pedestrians wishing to cross the park Monday through Thursday will need to arrange for a private vehicle to take them
between the Canyon Junction and the park's East Entrance.
 
Zion National Park will remain open for the duration of the project. People traveling to Zion National Park on State Route 9 from Interstate 15 will be able to enjoy Zion Canyon's recreational opportunities, access the park shuttle, campgrounds, and Zion Lodge, and frequent the businesses in Springdale without being in the construction area. Those traveling between US Highway 89 and Zion Canyon will be affected by the following
construction schedule.
 
CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE:
June 1-June 4
Short delays, no closures.
 
June 7-October 28
Monday through Thursday:
8:00am-6:00pm the road will be closed to all vehicles.
6:00pm-7:30am the road will be open for transit only. The last car allowed through will be at 7:30am. There may be short delays if night work is occurring.
Tunnel hours: 6:30am-7:30am and 6pm to 8:30pm through July 31. After July 31 the hours will shorten due to lack of daylight. All vehicles 7'10" wide or wider and 11'2" tall or taller are required to have an escort and can only travel during these times. This includes most dual wheeled pickup trucks, recreational vehicles and tour busses.
 
No vehicles will be able to stop or park at any time between the East Entrance and the junction of the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, Monday through Thursday. Remember that Utah is in the Mountain Time Zone and is one hour ahead of Nevada and Arizona. All vehicles must be through the barricades by 7:30am to drive across the park.
 
Friday through Sunday:
The road will be open as normal.
Tunnel hours: 6:30am-8:30pm through July 31. After July 31 the hours will shorten due to lack of daylight.
The road will be graded gravel in the work sections and the surface may be uneven at times. Please use caution and low speeds in these areas.
 
Alternate routes of travel between Zion Canyon and U.S Highway 89 are Utah State Route 59 from Hurricane, Utah to Arizona State Route 389 (better for large vehicles) or Utah State Route 14 from Cedar City, Utah to Long Valley Junction (high elevation/steep grades). During the construction period, travelers may want to consider using one of these roads between Zion Canyon and Bryce Canyon or Grand Canyon National Parks Monday through Thursday.
 
People visiting Zion Canyon via the park's South Entrance at Springdale, Utah, who are camping, accessing the shuttle system, staying at the Zion Lodge or in the town of Springdale will not be in the construction zone. Visitors in Zion Canyon are encouraged to use the town shuttle to avoid possible delays entering the park. Look for blue Park and Ride signs in Springdale and ride the free shuttle to the park entrance.

A major landslide occurred on October 11 on panel 18 west of Naches. Transportation officials have closed a 47-mile stretch of State Route 410 - from Mount Rainier National Park's Lake Tipsoo to its junction with U.S. Highway 12 at the Y west of Naches. Officials say it could be weeks before State Route 410 is reopened. For more information go to the WA DOT website: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Traffic/trafficalerts/

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Northern Tier Section 1 2009
« on: July 28, 2009, 02:59:42 pm »
Map Panel #14:
N. LeClerc Rd on the Kalispel Indian Reservation in PendOreille County near Usk, WA. This section, from POC Mp 3.5 - 8.5, is under improvement for the remainder of the summer, with expected completion 8/31/09. Widening, surfacing and paving efforts will cause delays of up to 30 mins. Piloting vehicles will be in use. Cyclists may want to use State Hwy. 20 which parallels N. LeClerc Rd. from Ione (map panel #13) to Usk and then using the bridge at Usk to cross to S. LeClerc Rd.

25
From mile 84.1 to mile 88.5 the road has become private property so access is no longer allowed. At this point, June 4, 2009, ACA does not have a way around this closure, but we are working on it. We recommend that you use the Chaco Alternate between Cuba and Grants. As soon as we have new routing we will list it on the online addenda.
