Road construction and natural disasters often close roads our permanents use. The permanents team tries to post information about these closures on the Detours page. Formerly we posted lists of affected routes… but that has proven to be too much work to maintain.
Going forward, we will post a general description of the closure, dates of the closure if known, and links to official web pages about the closure, if available.
We will suggest detours. However, if there are no viable detours, routes will be deactivated until the roads are reopened.
The detours page is also linked on the Perminator “Find a Permanent” page, and in the approval email the Perminator sends when you register for a permanent.
The permanents team makes no guarantee that the list of closures is complete. Riders are always responsible for checking for closures before starting a ride. To help with this, the detours page has links to several county road conditions websites. Also, Google Maps in Traffic View will show closures Google knows about. You will need to zoom in several steps to make closures on secondary roads visible.
If you have other resources for checking closures, please share them in the comments below.
