Sage Creek Rd. will be closed for construction from April 20 - Nov. 30, 2105. The closure is 31 miles in length. Currently the road is in reconstruction, with road closures scheduled. Closures of up to four hours will be allowed during daytime hours. Traffic will be allowed through the project from 7 am to 8 am, 12 noon to 1 pm, and 5 pm to 6 pm daily. There are no closures scheduled between 6 pm and 7 am. During times of closure all vehicles will not be allowed though, including bicyclists. Last year it was noted that cyclists were camping on the roadway alignment and awoke in the morning amidst construction activities.  Closures of the road is necessary to prevent the intermixing of the traveling public and construction traffic, thus providing the maximum possible safety of the public.

Cyclists - DO NOT camp on the roadway alignment. Plan your day to avoid construction times.

North terminus:
41°29'24.14" N 107°12'05.38" W
South terminus:
41°07'08.02" N 107°09'20.69" W

When I plot the two given lat/long positions and get the distance on Sage Creek Road, I get 31 miles, not 21.  Can you please confirm either the lat/long or the distance.  I ask this because I am trying to plan an alternate and the lat/long positions do matter in my planning.  Thanks

A detour is listed on our online addenda. FYI - on this detour the northern 6.7 miles are within the construction zone so plan accordingly.
Detour: ...169.0(272)Turn right onto McCarty Canyon Rd./CR 503. 195(314)Continue straight onto Cherry Grove Rd. 203.5(328)Turn right onto CR 561. 204.5(329)Savery. Turn left onto State Hwy. 70. 209(336)Slater.  Rejoin route on Map B at mile 42.1(67.7).

Yes, I was incorrect in saying it was 21.5 miles. It will be corrected ASAP.
