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.

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.

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 Ralph Fertig Coastal Bike Path along US 101 south of Carpinteria on Map 56 will be temporarily closed for emergency construction to repair damage to the bike path and adjacent slope caused by Tropical Storm Hilary. Construction is anticipated to begin January 15, 2024 and is estimated to take 30 working days. During construction, the bike path will be fully closed between Bates Road (Turn G/Exit #83) and Old Pacific Coast Highway (at the Cliff House Inn) to ensure worker and public safety.

You will be required to ride on the shoulder of US 101 during construction.

For further information, please contact James.Medina@dot.ca.gov

Hurricane Ian has caused widespread catastrophic damage across the state of Florida. The area surrounding Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Punta Gorda was the most seriously affected, but flooding and wind damage has also damaged infrastructure inland and on the Atlantic Coast. The Florida Connector Route is almost entirely affected. The northern portion of Section 7 of the Atlantic Coast Route is also affected.

The Ross Fork Fire (inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/8375/) burning near Alturas Lake in Idaho has closed a large portion of the Idaho Hot Springs Mountain Bike Route. The route between Stanley and Galena Summit is closed. There is no alternate routing at this time.

The Trail Ridge Fire (inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/8365/) burning near Sula, Montana, is affecting the area around Lost Trail Pass and Chief Joseph Pass near the Idaho/Montana Border. US 93 and MT 43 are currently still open, but smoke is thick and the fire is expected to grow, which may shut down the highways in the next few days. The Gibbons Pass Alternate is closed.

We have created a significant 177-mile detour to avoid the fire. It begins in Missoula and ends in Twin Bridges, and includes some riding on I-90 near Clinton, and between Fairmont and Ramsay. Also use caution on SR 2 south of Butte. The road is narrow and windy. See a map of the detour here: ridewithgps.com/routes/40852751

The area around the Goat Creek Trailhead/parking lot is closed due to construction, affecting the Canmore Cutoff. The Main Route should still be passable. See https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/ab/banff/bulletins/75F6E929-0FD6-40F7-B7A2-39E714342E2C for a map and more information.

We've received a report from a cyclist that the bike trail between San Clemente and Oceanside near Camp Pendleton is undergoing construction. The trail is still passable, but travel may be slowed/delayed, and you may need to lift your bike over some barriers. No more information is currently known, check back for updates.

CLOSURE:The bike path from the south entrance of the San Onofre State Park to the Pulgas Gate will be closed for Camp Pendleton military operations from September 15 to 19 from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily.
