This is what I found from the NFS site:
Sedro Woolley, WA – Drivers may experience up to 20 minute delays from August 23 to September 7, 2015, as construction begins on the last three miles of the Cascade River Road. The road will be closed to all vehicle and foot traffic from September 8 through late October 2015. The road closure will begin at the Eldorado parking area near mile post 20 and will affect hikers and climbers approaching the area from either the east or west side. Eldorado Peak and other peaks accessed via Eldorado Creek will not be affected.

My group would like to use this detour in September to get back on the PCT from near the Stehekin Ranch where we were hoping to stay and resupply. Then I discovered at http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/cascade-pass this:
"Trailhead access limited: Construction on the Cascade River Road will begin August 23, 2015 to late October 2015. The road will be closed completely to vehicle and foot traffic between September 8 and late October, 2015."
Can anyone confirm these dates. If "September 8" is correct it will prevent us from using the detour.
