The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to temporarily close a popular bike path in Ventura County on the nights of July 30 and July 31 for construction.

Crews will construct smoother and safer shoulders on the recently repaved bike path along State Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) between the city of Ventura and Emma Wood State Beach.

The bike path will be closed at the following times:
Between 7 p.m. July 30 (Thursday) and 6 a.m. July 31 (Friday), and
Between 7 p.m. July 31 (Friday) and 6 a.m. August 1 (Saturday).
The schedule is weather-permitting, and all dates and times are subject to change.

The temporary closure involves 1.2 miles of the coastal bike trail. The western end of the project is the State Beach Access Road north of Emma Wood State Beach. The eastern end of the project is the park access road to Emma Wood State Beach’s Ventura River Group Camp, just west of the Ventura River.

Bicyclists are not allowed into Glacier National Park from the east side, where the Blackfeet Reservation is located, this summer. The reservation is closed to limit COVID exposure. The only open way for a cyclist is to ride the Marias Alternate on U.S. 2, since Going to the Sun Rd. in the park and Canada are off limits. The tribe is asking that all bicyclists plan to NOT stop on U.S. 2 between East Glacier and Cut Bank (distance of ~47 mi.), so Browning is unavailable for services.

All hiker/biker sites at the Oregon state park campgrounds are closed for the summer of 2020. For more information see https://stateparks.oregon.gov/index.cfm?do=v.dsp_featureArticle&articleId=272

In order to limit the further spread of coronavirus, the U.S. has reached an agreement with Canada to limit all non-essential travel across borders. The closure is now extended to July 21, 2020. For more information go to https://www.dhs.gov/news/2020/06/16/fact-sheet-dhs-measures-border-limit-further-spread-coronavirus

This affects the Great Parks North Route, the Northern Tier Route, the Great Divide Route, the Lake Erie Connector, the Underground Railroad Route, and the Underground Railroad Detroit Alternate Route.

Construction will close ~4.5 miles of the Cedar Lake Regional Trail between the town of Hopkins and France Ave. S. through Fall 2021. Currently, this is the only project closing the route, but other area projects have been planned for the near future that could have an impact on the route. Here is the detour that ACA suggests, which is very similar to official detours linked below but avoids a couple dangerous turns. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/32774315

Here are official posted detour maps (which includes the Cedar Lake Regional Trail):  https://metrocouncil.org/Transportation/Projects/Light-Rail-Projects/Southwest-LRT/Construction/Detour-Maps.aspx?source=child#Regional%20Trails

Realignments around the washouts on FR 227 east of Bowns Campground/Smoky Bar will commence on-the-ground work starting May 18. The plan is to close the washout area to all travel, including bicycle and pedestrian traffic while the work is being implemented from May 18 until approximately the end of July. There will be signs or reader boards at Featherville to warn those bicyclists coming from the west that the route will not be passable (if they go through and reach the worksite they will be turned around).

 In addition there will be a period of time in July when traffic will be stopped during the day west of Worswick Hotsprings on the FR 227, through the narrows, while the company collects large rock for the washout work. This could affect the routes folks take after coming over Dollarhide Summit from the east.

A bridge is being replaced on SR 38 between Hartville (map 105) and the intersection of SR 38 and SR E (map 106). Work is scheduled to begin August 31, and will last for 3 months. SR 38 is closed. The detour is 5.5 mi. longer than the route. A detour will be posted, and here is the map for it: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/32065847

A resurfacing project on SR 83 will begin at the end of April 2020 and lasts until the end of July 2020. It is 16.3 miles in length. It begins on SR 83 at milepost 47.8 (5 mi. N. of Condon), and ends at milepost 31.5 (11 mi. S. of Condon). This construction will affect only 1.6 mi. on the Great Divide Route, from turn P (Kraft Creek Rd./CR 561 to turn Q (Holland Lake Rd.). The contractor will accommodate bicyclists through the construction zone. The project will occur in stages, so riders may or may not encounter this project. There will only be flaggers at each end of the project, and a pilot car will lead motorists/cyclists through the zone. They are required to maintain a surface that cyclists are capable of riding on, and providing plenty of time for cyclists to make it through the zone.

Both lanes of the Natchez Parkway in the greater Jackson, MS area from I-55 to SR 49 are closed due to concerns over potential subsidence of the road shoulder. A detour is posted for cars, but we've been told that bicyclists will be allowed through. Most of this section uses the multi-use trail alongside the Parkway so it only affects 2.5 miles of the Parkway. The work should take about a month.

An extensive process to repair the ramp system at the North Carolina Ferry Division’s Southport Terminal is now underway. Barring weather or other delays, ferry service between Fort Fisher and Southport is tentatively scheduled to resume Oct. 1.

If anyone can recommend a detour we would appreciate it.

The Neville Island Bridge is closed for construction but due to open at the end of August, 2019.

Report from a cyclist:

"As of the first week of August 2019, we were able to ride across it on a Saturday when there was no construction or workers there, however, I don't know if you can do this when work is in progress. The bridge is nearly complete but if you can't cross it, you have two options: 1. ride a nasty hill and route to Coraopolis on Route 51, or 2. wait at that corner for a PAT Bus (I forget the number but it is the only one coming). Cost is $2.85 and each bus can hold 2 bikes. If you have more than 2 or the rack is full, you are sol and have to wait for the next one or ride. Also, if you do ride the bus, to use the rack, there's a handle on top that you squeeze to lower the rack. Then place your bike in the tire holders and be sure to bring the "J" handle up over your front wheel as far towards your stem as you can and let it hold there. Be sure to put the rack back up when you get off.

Emergency roadwork is occurring about 3.5 mi. SW of Stoner on State Hwy. 145. A rockslide, with a huge boulder, slid onto the highway May 25. At present, a single lane is open with alternating traffic using portable traffic lights. Expect delays. Go here for more information: https://cotrip.org/map.htm#/default?LaneClosureAlertId=305249
