UPDATE: Caltrans announced today (Feb. 25, 2021) that major emergency repairs of Highway 1 on the Big Sur Coast at Rat Creek will begin March 1 and that it estimates it will reopen the famed roadway early this summer. https://atascaderonews.com/news/caltrans-announces-emergency-repairs-for-highway-1-at-rat-creek/

According to our blog post from 2016, "Caltrans has stated it is legal to ride on the shoulder of I-5 between Las Pulgas Road and Oceanside, exits 62 to 54."

Also, according to most recent StreetView imagery, the southbound entrance ramp at Las Pulgas Road and the northbound entrance ramp at Harbor Dr. both have signs that state "no pedestrians" but do NOT say "no bicycles". If bicycles were not allowed, it should explicitly say "Pedestrians, Bicycles, Motor-Driven Cycles Prohibited." (See northbound entrance ramp at Las Pulgas Road for an example.)

There are certain sections of I-5 where bicyclists are allowed, and other sections where bicyclists are not allowed. If you pay attention to the signs at the onramps, it should make this clear. Once you enter a legal section of the interstate, in a few miles you should see a sign that says "Bicycles, motor-driven cycles must exit" where bicycles become prohibited again. That's where you need to exit.

In January 2021, a section of Highway 1 at Rat Creek (north of Lucia, map 48) collapsed when the cliffside below gave way amid torrential rain. Both the northbound and southbound lanes washed away. The road will be impassable for an undetermined amount of time, at least several months. Check the current status of Highway 1 here: roads.dot.ca.gov

The recommended detour is 147.9 miles long, beginning in Marina and ending in Cambria. Services are limited between King City and Paso Robles. See the detour here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35120765. Note that it can be significantly hotter inland than it is on the coast.

EDIT: This post originally included a detour for southbound riders using Nacimiento-Fergusson Road, which we have since learned is closed due to damage from the Dolan fire.

A portion of River Road between Portland and Belvidere is closed to replace a culvert. See https://umbt.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Detour-Plan-for-River-Road-Bridge-Replacement.jpg for a detour.

35
Lower Brule and Crow Creek Indian Reservations are closed to outsiders due to COVID-19. This requires a detour between Chamberlain and Pierre. See the detour here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33634482

If your prefer a detour without interstate riding, here is a longer and less direct detour. Services are limited. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33634695

Routes / Re: Northern tier #10 Maps 126-127 To Avoid Canada Alternate
« on: July 22, 2020, 01:13:16 pm »
Here is a map of the route to avoid Canada posted above: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/33477409

This is the most direct version of the alternate, that does not go into Niagara Falls.

37
We have received a report from a cyclist on the road that Old White Bird Hill Rd. southwest of Grangeville, Idaho has been recently chipsealed with fairly large-stone gravel. This road is steep and windy, ride very carefully.

38
The bridge over Little River between Quincy and Midway (High Bridge Rd./CR 268) is closed until further notice for repair. US 90 can be used as a detour. See https://ridewithgps.com/routes/32100110 for a map of the reroute.

In Wolcott, Mill St. is closed while a bridge is being repaired. You will have to detour south onto SR 104, which has wide shoulders. The detour should be signed. The construction is expected to be finished by Fall 2019. See https://www.wolcottny.org/mill-street-bridge.html for more information.

In Blaine, WA, Sweet Rd., Hughes Ave., and Bell Rd. are closed for construction. You must cross I-5 at a different location. Here is a link to the detour: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30723000

The construction is expected to be done in Fall 2019.

Highway 61 between Lake City and Wabasha is being resurfaced and traffic is being detoured onto CR 10 and CR 4. To avoid riding with the heavy truck traffic being detoured onto CR 4, CR 9 and CR 33 south of Lake City can be used as an alternate. See http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d6/projects/hwy61-resurfacing/index.html for more information. The construction is expected to end August 16, 2019.

42
A four mile section of the route between the left matchline on map 70 and turn B on CR 58 is undergoing reconstruction and is currently unpaved. It is planned to be paved in August 2019.

Highway 1 is being resurfaced between Cayucos and Harmony beginning Monday, April 1. The highway will stay open but there will be short delays and alternating lane closures.

The bridge has finished earlier than expected and is now open.

45
On map 4, the bridge over the Jackson River at turn D (Natural Well Rd./CR 638) is closed for construction. The construction is planned to be completed by summer 2019. Use CR 605 as a detour.
