ACA has reached out to the Louisiana Department of Transportation, but has not received a response regarding this situation.

In the meantime, we recommend getting a ride in a vehicle across I-10 around the closure.

Don's Taxi Service (985-290-1525) has a Honda CR-V that can fit 1 bicycle in the back with the seats folded down.

For groups up to 3, you can rent a Uhaul (www.uhaul.com) to carry you and your bikes from New Orleans/Chalmette, LA to Waveland/Bay St. Louis, MS. Each truck has a bench seat which can fit 3 individuals.

You could also try to find an Uber that is able to carry you and your bike.

We will continue to post updates as we receive more information.

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.

There is road construction on SR 76 north of Marquette from turn A (junction with CR X52) to the Clayton/Allamakee County border, a distance of about 4 miles. There will be intermittent lane closures, with flaggers and pilot cars.

UPDATE: All entrances to Yellowstone National Park CLOSED temporarily due to heavy flooding, rockslides, extremely hazardous conditions; Stay informed about road status and weather conditions.

Roads in northern portion of Yellowstone National Park CLOSED temporarily due to heavy flooding, rockslides, extremely hazardous conditions. See https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/220613.htm for more info. Some of the roads may be closed for an extended period of time due to the damage.

The current descriptions of the road closures do NOT affect the TransAm or Parks, Peaks, and Prairies routes, but NPS is currently "assessing damage" on these southern roads and more rain is expected.

All entrances to the park are closed and vehicles are being turned away at the entrances.

We will continue to update as more information is learned.

On the Parks, Peaks, and Prairies route, if heading eastbound, beginning in West Yellowstone you will need to follow the Teton Valley Alternate.
TETON VALLEY ALTERNATE: This 139.3 mile alternate to avoid the Park begins in West Yellowstone, MT, and heads west, south and east through Idaho into Wyoming. Here is the link: ridewithgps.com/routes/35560313. You'll ride 36 miles on US 20 through Montana and Idaho. The highway has variable shoulder widths, and continuous rumble strips in Idaho. It also has fast moving traffic. In both Idaho and Wyoming there will still be traffic, but we have routed onto several separate bike paths where possible. The Idaho state highways are mostly narrow, and have minimal to no shoulders. The alternate ends in Jackson, Wyoming, where you will follow routing to rejoin the main Parks, Peaks, and Prairies route in Ten Sleep on this link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/39859124. Here is a pdf that lists services on the Teton Valley Alternate: https://www.adventurecycling.org/default/assets/Image/Routes_Maps/Addenda/Teton_Valley_Alternate_services.pdf
