Thanks for posting - I was going to do so today as well. They had lit signs the last couple of weekends saying July 6-23rd for the project.

Rode it today - it's only about 5 miles worth, headed north on 202 from the junction of Scappoose-Vernonia onward. It was okay - looked really good, but I'd say the surface hasn't really set yet. No obvious gravels, but the bike seemed to move around on it. Also, I was hoping that section would be smoother, but only by a matter of degrees.

Definitely not awful, though - and didn't dampen a really epic ride today to Garibaldi. Very light traffic (on the backroads!), beautiful weather - felt like the right thing to do at the right time.

Hope you've all been riding today, too.
