^^So that's a worst case scenario. If someone is out drinking, driving and bar-hopping, which he shouldn't be, I guess the worst case is Grayton to Blue Mountain since there are no establishments on the hole stretch. You have to drive about 5 additional miles on 283 and 83 combined. On 98, you have a higher speed limit than you would have on 30A. With a little careful speeding on 98, you could probably trim the delay back to about 10 minutes. In the meantime, it's business as usual for us bike riders neener, neener!
By coincidence, I currently have a jobsite about 500 yards west of Redfish Hole and a jobsite 500 yards east of Redfish Hole. I timed my detour route this morning and it took me 14 minutes. When you subtract the backtracking I did, a motorist, taking the highway 98 detour from Grayton to Redfish Village will experience a delay of approximately 12 to 15 minutes.
We can handle this, guys!
(but the humor sure helps)
If someone is out "drinking, driving and bar hopping" they should end up in 30-A Hole. Guess that would be an "a-hole" in an "A Hole".
I agree. I see the most serious impact on the late nite party crowd, and it's not a matter of IF people are out drinking, driving and bar hopping. They most certainly are.
So y'all must live in EWOL, road closure doesn't bother you. You are so wrong this is not about late night party people. Businesses on the west end are hurting big time! Do I need to make a list? No names but, bike shops, health food store, local retail, great local restaurants, artists, this is having a huge impact on our WeWOL economy! Drive over and support your locals!
