I heard rumor that the tunnel was open. Any truth to that? I thought there was catastrophic damage and it was closed indefinitely. Anybody? Any news?

All reports I have read says it’s open. There is bridge across Salt creek a few miles west of the tunnel that is not passable and may be a while before it’s repaired. The recommended detour is on 40 hiway, however there is a gravel alternative if you don’t like road riding. Scroll down the forum a few posts there is a thread discussing this issue and the detours.

The title of the thread is opening/ finished dates

Hi! The tunnel is open and you can ride approximately 3 miles West to Salt Creek before having to turn around to head back to Rocheport. Being that close to the damage is much different than the view from the Hwy 40 bridge.
