I drove many of the roads over in NJ today (09/16) to check them out. Found a few issues, which I will list here, but was encouraged by how many roads were open and ridable. Since I was driving, I did not go down any roads that had "Road Closed" signs up so I can't say if you'd be able to get through on a bike. Also, the situation with these roads is fluid (pun intended) so it can change from day to day.
Issues:
1) Lower Creek Rd., as we've all heard, is closed and not ridable.
2) Alexauken Creek Rd. is also closed.
3) Raven Rock Rd., from Federal Twist down to the iron bridge is open and can be ridden, but there is a lot of gravel on it and you have to be careful going down it.
4) Harmony School Rd. is closed.
5) Bridge on Sandbrook Headquarters Rd. by Britton Rd. is out.
6) Union St. in Lambertville was closed from Elm St. to Cherry St.
7) Brookville Hollow Rd., I was able to get through on the gravel portion, but I wouldn't ride it with a road bike. Only a gravel, MTB, or Cross bike.
8) Horseshoe Bend Rd., there was debris and a very bad pothole by the bridge. No warning as you come down the hill and around the curve.
9) Haines Rd. (between Dunkard Church & Rosemont Ringoes Rd.) had a construction crew where it runs into Dunkard Church and was blocked.

Following is a list of roads that I drove on and found were ridable. However, even though you can get through on these roads, be advised that many roads have serious debris washed along their edges, or have the edges washed out, especially where they cross over creeks. Also, lots of new pot holes and spots with gravel washed across the roads. So exercise caution, especially when going downhill.
