Bikeway road conditions and construction information available from local road departments. Information below is not a complete list.

 

Many of the bikeways do not have cell service.

Bikeways are on roads with car and truck traffic. For car-free riding check out the Banks-Vernonia trail on the Tualatin Valley Bikeway and the Rowe River trail of the Covered Bridges Bikeway.

Road Construction and Conditions:


Covered Bridges: The Row River trail segment of the Bikeway is slated to be closed due to construction to improve the trail pavement. Anticipated closure date is July. The BLM site has detailed information.

 

Madras Mountain Views: Expect construction, construction equipment and possible delays on Old Culver Highway and some adjacent streets. 


McKenzie Pass:  The latest information from ODOT is: Crews are working to reopen the McKenzie Highway for the 2018 summer season after the Milli Wildfire heavily burned the area last summer. Forest Service and ODOT officials are working together to remove danger trees from the roadside and repair damage to the roadway. This means that visitors are not allowed on the highway while crews are in the area repairing and restoring it.

Crews will have heavy equipment on the highway Monday through Thursday. Signs are posted indicating “extreme danger” and “road closed” to warn potential visitors of the hazards along the highway.

On weekends, crews will remove the warning signs to indicate that visiting is permitted.  Visitors, including cyclists and pedestrians, must be aware that ODOT is not maintaining the highway for wheeled travel at this time, and visitors are on the highway at their own risk.

It is anticipated that normal summer activities will be permitted on Highway 242 on the third Monday in June.


Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway: Construction at State Capitol State Park. Fencing and construction equipment is blocking the bikeway sign. Park is open. Ride through park to continue on Winter Street.
