I-40 Construction = Better Epic Route?

Postby seth » Mon Jun 24, 2013 2:52 pm

Calling all Rippers:

Does the road construction on I-40 east potentially open up an alternate (better/safer) epic route? It looks like they're working on the area where the river is closest to the highway, possibly trying to stave off more erosion. The area in question is where we formerly had to go up and around the wolf between Hollywood and Watkins.

Has anyone been through there recently?

Well, I suspect that they're installing a retaining wall of large stones that will be unrideable--judging from what I've seen driving by every day after work. But the I-40 shoulder route will still be open. Who knows, maybe it will offer new thrills.

I imagine that the epic remains a quagmire, since WRTs are not fully dry yet. When WRTs are as dry as a bone, it's time to think about the epic.
