TransAmerica Section 10, Map 120, SR140 Road Closure, Oct 2022
« on: October 23, 2022, 11:43:27 pm »
SR 140 is closed for a bridge replacement between SR 815 (Guffie) and SR 81 (Glenville), 2.2 miles east of SR 815. The closure is well signed with a detour posted for both EB and WB travel.

Upon the advice of a local, I took a chance and was able to ride through on Oct 21, 2022 (didn't even need to dismount). The new concrete bridge deck is in place, but the surface isn't finished/graded and the guardrails aren't yet in place. It was also late enough in the day that no work crews were on site.

As a bonus, there was no other traffic on this 5 mile stretch.

No guarantees you'll have the same experience or that this is a safe option, but hopefully this can help any other late-season travelers like me still out there on the TransAm.

Construction must have been completed, there was no longer a road closure when I went through a few days ago. Cheers!
