ALERT for DuPage County, IL riders. Ferry Road is now truly closed.Kristin

I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who uses Ferry Road. Yesterday they ripped up about 1 mile worth of pavement west of Route 59. Its all loose dirt and unpassable for road bikes. I was driving the dirt section on the way home from work yesterday and bumped into an old friend from my bike club who got stuck riding on it because he was unaware. Ugh.

For those of you who don't live here, but for some strange reason opened the post anyway... Ferry is used by a fair number riders in DuPage, and has been "closed" to thru traffic for about a year. However, it has been passable and many drivers and riders have continued to go around the baracades and use the road. Until yesterday, it wasn't a big deal.
Thanks (nm)PEDDLEFOOT
