State Highway 89 is closed due to the Yarnell fire on maps 16 and 17 from mile marker 283 north of Peeples Valley to Date Creek Rd. south of Yarnell (about 14 miles). Here's a link to more info: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/3461/

The roads on the Great Divide Route through the Santa Fe National Forest between Abiquiu and Cuba are closed to all travel. See this link for more information: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/santafe/news-events/?cid=STELPRDB5425196

The easiest detour: from Abiquiu, go west on US 84, continue west on SR 96, then south on SR 96, then SE on US 550 to Cuba.

FR 150 was closed June 23 due to the Silver Fire. It's closed from just south of the Beaverhead Work Center (mile 99.1) to Hwy. 35 (mile 146.2). There's lots of fire vehicles on the road and the fire, which is east of the road, is heading north and west so that's why it was closed. It'll be closed anywhere from 7 -14 days.

The easiest detour would be to take Hwy. 12 west (mile 39.0), then south on US 180 to Silver City.

The route is closed for a bridge replacement at Bolivar. Westbound cyclists use SR 1061 north, then turn left (west) onto SR 1057. Eastbound there is no sign in or near Tangipahoa so stay on SR 1057, then turn right (south) on SR 1061 to Bolivar and rejoin the route.

Routes / Emergencies on paved rail-trails??
« on: September 24, 2012, 04:08:59 pm »
Has anyone had an emergency on a paved rail-trail where you had to get an ambulance to come pick up the injured person? Can ambulances or other vehicles drive on rail-trails? We had this question from someone and I'm curious to find out if anyone has dealt with this issue.

The Memorial Bridge over the Piscataqua River between Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH is under construction and will be closed until July 2013. Bicycles are not allowed on the two remaining bridges closest to the Memorial Bridge. A shuttle bus is running daily from 5 AM to 1 AM seven days a week and can accommodate bicycles. To see the schedule and pickup locations in both towns go to: http://www.memorialbridgeproject.com/
The website says nothing about recumbents so if you are riding one you should go the contact information on the website and ask if they can accommodate your bike.

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:
