The "closure" at Rocheport does have two possible alternatives. The easiest is (if it hasn't rained in a bit) crossing the creek just south about 75 feet of the washed out bridge (which will not be replaced any time soon). There is a farmers path to get through the creek there. It has a concrete base, but you will definitely get your feet wet. but, if that is possible (again, if it hasn't rained in a bit), it beats out the second alternative of taking the highway bridge IMO, because that bridge is a long two lane (one lane each way) highway with zero shoulder. It was scary for me, and I have ridden road bikes a third of my life. I'm 60 :).
As for the rock slide closure, I watched a youtube video of someone crossing it on foot. If you have a lot of gear, it might take a few trips (pun intended) but, I think it is possible to cross that too. I would watch the video(s?) and decide for yourself.
