Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Teton Pass is Closed
« on: June 10, 2024, 11:45:27 am »
No, that's okay! There's some good information already here. But if you could edit the forum post title to say "TransAm Section 5, Teton Pass is closed, 2024" that would be helpful.

Thanks!

The official ACA name of the alternate is the "Teton Valley Alternate", which is a digital-only alternate. We do not have any detours around this landslide, nor do we plan on creating one. The Main Route through Yellowstone is still open. It is recommended to ride very early in the morning to avoid the peak traffic.

As of spring 2024, this construction is still ongoing (way past its initial estimated completion date), but hopefully will be completed later this year. Continue to check https://www.us50info.com/ for information. Also, an unofficial Facebook page is posting updates as well: https://www.facebook.com/p/US-50-Middle-Bridge-Closure-and-Little-Blue-Creek-Canyon-Road-Construction-100079238634231/.

In addition, the bridge over the Blue Mesa Reservoir (about 12 miles east of the construction in Little Blue Creek Canyon) is closed due to a failed inspection. See more information in this forum post: https://forums.adventurecycling.org/index.php?topic=18062.0 or CDOT's website: https://www.codot.gov/projects/us50bluemesa#msdynmkt_trackingcontext=993132cc-2815-401c-9abb-5fb7823b8fe0

The bridge is now open for bicyclists and pedestrians.

On Pacific Coast Section 1, Map 13, the Cathlamet-Westport ferry is out of service until further notice due to mechanical issues. https://www.co.wahkiakum.wa.us/252/Ferry

The following detour begins in Longview, WA (map 12) and connects back to the Pacific Coast Route in Westport, OR (map 13). The detour uses the Lewis & Clark Bridge over the Columbia River. The bridge has shoulders, but they may contain debris and traffic may be heavy depending on the time of day. Ride with caution and try to ride over the bridge during non-peak hours if possible. Beware of logging trucks using the bridge. Once across the bridge, the remainder of the detour borrows routing from the Lewis & Clark Bicycle Route (Section 7) to Westport.

Latham Rd. can also be used as a cutoff between US 5 and the I-91 interchange. This skips a nasty hill in East Thetford.

The US 50 bridge over Blue Mesa Reservoir on map 51 is closed due to structural concerns. There are no detours around the closure less than 300 miles. There is currently no estimated time of reopening. See https://www.codot.gov/news/media for more information.

Old Mine Road on Map 22 will be closed for construction between Millbrook Village Historic Site and the NPS boundary at Mile Marker 6/Worthington State Forest (approximately where the red "12.6" mileage label is on the 2023 version of the paper map) during summer 2024. Here is a detour: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46535398

The Colonial Parkway is currently undergoing repairs and has several closures due to construction.

The Parkway is closed from the SR 199 underpass to Williamsburg. This closure is expected to last through summer of 2025. Use S. Henry St./SR 132 as a detour.

The Parkway is also closed from the Penniman Rd. underpass to Felgates Creek, and from Fusiliers Rd. to Ballard St. These closures are expected to last through winter 2024/2025. The following can be used as a detour into Yorktown: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46348554 Merrimac Trail does not have shoulders, ride with caution.

See https://www.nps.gov/colo/planyourvisit/colo-parkway-rehab.htm for more updates and information.

There is construction on Highway 200 in Montana (Section 3 of the Northern Tier).

On April 8, 2024, the bridge over the Beaverhead River in Twin Bridges was closed indefinitely after a failed inspection. Read a news article here: https://www.fairfieldsuntimes.com/news/state/highway-41-bridge-between-twin-bridges-dillon-closed-indefinitely/article_79ebcdb9-56e2-5a83-b836-1cad41c46de4.html

Here is a detour around the closed bridge: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46187751

This detour is 8.5 miles long and partially unpaved. It is the same detour that all traffic will be using, so ride with caution.

Unfortunately, the Bill White Bike Camp in Twin Bridges is on the opposite side of the bridge closure and will not be accessible.

For updates on the closure, call 406-208-0551 or see https://www.mdt.mt.gov/travinfo/alerts.aspx[/img]]

This detour is 6.5 miles long and partially unpaved. It is the same detour that all traffic will be using, so ride with caution. The detour bypasses the town of Twin Bridges, so if you'd like to access the town for services, you'll have to do an out-and-back along SR 287. Unfortunately, the Bill White Bike Camp is on the opposite side of the bridge closure and will not be accessible.

For updates on the closure, call 406-208-0551 or see https://www.mdt.mt.gov/travinfo/alerts.aspx

The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route was rerouted in 2017 to no longer use Spray Lakes West Rd. due to a wildlife closure. The road was closed from mile 17.2 to 36.3 between April 15 and November 15 to protect critical wildlife movement corridors in the area. See the attached image to see how the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route currently appears on our map. (Note the "No Bicycles" icon on Spray Lakes West Road.) I can't find any current information about this wildlife closure, so you may want to contact Alberta Parks to see if it will still be in effect this summer.

I am unaware about any issues with flooding.

I also found this article about the closure of Spray Lakes West Campground and surrounding area from September 2023 to the end of June 2024.

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Pacific Coast Big Sur status
« on: March 26, 2024, 12:27:13 pm »
Below is the detour we have used to get around landslides on Highway 1 in Big Sur in previous years:

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35120765

The 147.9 mile detour begins in Marina, and rejoins the Pacific Coast route just south of Cambria. The detour does not use US 101 at any point.
