Closed Entrace

One of the two entrances to Robert Allerton Park has been closed. The Allerton Bridge was closed due to safety concerns, therefore the entrace on Route 105 (coming from Monticello) is also closed.

The roads in the Monticello/Allerton area are clearly marked to help guide conference participants to Allerton via alternate routes.
