Atlantic Coast: Section 2, Maps 23-24
« on: June 09, 2014, 01:23:13 pm »
Was out riding Saturday. Somewhere between Milford, NJ and Carpentersville, NJ there has been a minor slide at a culvert. The road is blocked to cars with Jersey barriers and there are detour signs posted. We ignored the signs. The short, damaged section of road is easily passable and not dangerous. If you are towing a trailer (Earlier in the day we saw a tandem towing a trailer cruise through Belvidere) you might have to un-hitch to get around the barriers or else push up the railroad embankment, but I would ignore the detour signs, especially since the detour likely involves some tough climbing. The area did not appear to be an active work zone so there is no telling when the road will be repaired. A similar (but more severe) slide at Carpentersville a few years ago took months to repair.

My pleasure. I would hate for someone to climb away from the river for no reason. It can get very steep in that part of NJ.

Saw this during that ride:

May see some of you on Thursday. Landing at MSO around noon for the start of a 9-day loop on Friday. Don't know if I will be back by 1 p.m. the following Saturday.

I hope I'm in the office when/if you come by on Thursday. I am typically off by 3 so it could happen.
