    Yes, and it appears that the link to "Road Status" has changed ever so slightly to the following (the word "/recreation/" was replaced with the word "/conditions/":

    I do believe I see both Gale River Road and Zealand Road labelled as open!

    Zealand Hut lists the road as closed still as of this morning.

    News this morning said that the Evans Notch Road (RT113) is now open but you may still see some workers on the bridge over Lary Brook.

    Do note that Jefferson Notch road usually washes out pretty badly on the north end, especially the last 1/2 miel before Cap Ridge Parking, it may be "open" but not very user friendly until the state runs the road grader over the road, which usually occurs during the week going into Memorial Day.

    Can anyone say if the western end of this road is usually drivable by a standard-clearance vehicle at this time of year?

    Maybe drop a fly into Russell Pond.

    Thanks,

    Mike, although the western end of Tripoli is a dirt road, it is dry, clean and hard. No problem with a passenger car. In fact it is in better condition than the Livermore side which is paved but has potholes and boulders coming up through the road surface.

    That is my experience, as well...

    Haystack Road?

    Anybody been up Haystack Road? The forest Service is listing it as Closed but the comments mention that "Some sections might need Extra care". Does that mean it is open and pass at your own risk in other words. Thanks in advance.

    Have not been by the past week, but Haystack Road is usually the last to open because of softer roadbed than most.

    I drove by there a week ago and it was still gated.
