Question regarding Mt Scott, OK access road closure

I see the recent road closure posting from refuge management.  The road is closed to vehicle traffic at a certain point (that i have not yet identified for my own understanding), however it is currently open to bike and foot traffic.  I've never visited the area but am planning to next weekend.  This question is for those familiar with this area and the current road and access conditions:  Is a walk from parking nearest to the road closure to the climbing area itself doable/reasonable?

A walk to lower mount Scott would be easy, upper mount Scott would be pretty far, but still largely easy (paved) terrain. Shouldn’t be enough to keep you away from the area though, just give yourself extra hiking time

Yep! I have hiked to lower Mount Scott when the road was closed. Totally reasonable! Upper Mount Scott would be more of a hike, but still doable.
