So, it turns out the road is closed today and tomorrow. There was a sign at the start in Bergen Park, so I knew I was only going to Echo Lake. I decided to see how fast I could get there, and I think I am in for a long day on Saturday. 1:55 to the summit (second one) and 2:10 to Echo Lake. I couldn't push any faster without knee pain and I doubt I can push that fast on Saturday, given the length of the ride.
BTW, the sign said closed Wednesdays and Thursdays in January, so it may not only be this week. I talked to the guy at the gate and he said a section of shoulder collapsed and they are doing major reinforcement to prevent anymore loss.
