Road construction is occurring along the Generals Highway between the Giant Forest Museum and the Amphitheater Point Overlook in Sequoia National Park. There will be traffic delays with only one lane open. The Park says bicyclists are permitted through the construction zone but it is not advised due to broken or missing pavement, narrow lanes and no shoulders. If you are planning to bicycle through the construction zone, take additional consideration for delays associated with road construction. Bicyclists are subject to the same traffic-delay schedule as motorized vehicles. The project will be completed before winter of 2018/2019. The delay schedule and more information can be found here: https://www.nps.gov/seki/planyourvisit/road-construction.htm

McKenzie Pass road is still closed until further notice.   

From link:   "April 18th 2018: New update from ODOT, they have closed the road to all users! Because of the fire last year ODOT is still assessing and clearing danger trees, the state of the roadway and culverts. Work crews are on the highway with heavy equipment. Once they have completed their work bicyclist and pedestrians will be allowed at their own risk. The plan is to open the highway to cars and all users the third Monday in June, June 18th. No date at this time when crews will be done."

No there is not. But if someone notifies us that the construction is done we can delete the post.

Great idea, John!

Yes, it will. I have posted separately for Lewis & Clark.

In Idaho, more than 50 miles of road repaving and two bridge replacements will occur between April and October 2018 along the Lochsa River corridor/US 12 on the Lewis & Clark Trail Section 6 map. There will be significant delays. Adventure Cycling is still talking to the Idaho Transportation Department about options to help cyclists traverse the roadway. We will post more information when we have it. For more information see: http://itd.idaho.gov/us12

FYI if you are considering the Western Express. On section 3 state hwy. 148 through Cedar Breaks National Monument is closed during the winter months, from the end of October to mid to late May. There is a detour listed on the map.

Have you read about the route on the website page? I recommend you doing that and clicking on the tabs - Terrain, Logistics, etc. It gives a lot of general information about the route.

The route no longer goes through Washington, LA. We changed it more than 5 years ago. I do remember a campground there but not the name of it.

Routes / Re: Should/could I take my dog on the Great Divide Route?
« on: October 27, 2017, 12:01:25 pm »
I understand wanting to take your dog for companionship (I have 2 dogs) but whatever breed your dog is can she continue that sustained pace for days on end? Even if you can do 75 mi./day that's still over a month's worth of riding and what wear and tear would be done to her body and joints, etc. And paws! I think she'd need to wear booties to protect from thorns, sharp rocks, etc. When you think about cattle dogs and border collies (working breeds) they have bouts of high energy but it's not sustained for 8 hours/day. Can she get up and do it day after day after day? And are you prepared to carry her if she gets hurt?

I think it's a good idea to leave her at home.

When ACA first mapped the Pacific Coast Route in the mid 1980s U.S. Highway 101, especially along the WA coast, did not have adequate infrastructure for bicyclists. It didn't have shoulders and lots of logging trucks used the road. That's why we stayed inland.

When we published the Washington Parks Route in 2008 we used major portions of Highway 101 along the western coast, due to the fact that shoulders have been added. But we didn't look at highway 101 south of Aberdeen so I'm not sure of the road conditions.

Here is a link to the Washington DOT state bike map that might help you.

On SR 79 1/2-mile south of Louisiana, the highway is closed due to construction on two bridges. The posted detour by Missouri DOT is about 24 miles. The highway is closed until November 2017.

The cyclists who notified us detoured via US 54 to Bowling Green, then US 61 to Troy. Elevation on their detour was almost flat due to the way US highways are graded. Both highways have wide, paved shoulders so they felt safe on these roads.
