This map shows the closure areas and possible alternate routes to take around the construction. Some of the bypass routes take you through residential areas, so be respectful as you proceed. The roads shown in the DETAIL near the Top of the World are narrow and steep. Be especially careful if you are heading south on Flats Road at the intersection with Happy Valley Road. It is very steep and has a sharp switchback. A number of people have misjudged this intersection and gone off the mountain.
