Fishing Bridge to Madison CG in Yellowstone

I will be in Yellowstone in Sept. 34' Winnebago with toad. Entering park at east gate and going to Fishing Bridge CG. I will then move to Madison CG.

Problem is that the southern loop will be closed Sept 2 due to bridge replacement at Craig Pass so the road from the Thumb to Madison will be closed.

Any experienced travelers know the mileage from Fishing Bridge to Madison using a northern route thru Canyon Village, Norris to Madison?

How long for that trip and can I negotiate it in a 34' motorhome?

I will need to back track to exit the park out south gate.

For the route, Fishing Bridge/Canyon/Norris/Madison "OK" for everybody.

Whatever time you think that you will need to see Y’stone NP you better double it!
Remember that Y’stone Park itself is about 50 miles E/W and 70 miles N/S (2.2 Mil Acres) and the Grand Loop (figure 8) road is about 140 miles around. With a 45mph speed limit (radar controlled) and all the thermal attractions, the Bison think that they own the road and will back up traffic for ˝ mile or more and the altitude (Canyon Area is 7918 ft, Old Faithful is 7365 ft and Mammoth Area is ONLY? 6239 ft) it will take a full day for each loop, when walking take it easy, carry/drink lots of water as it can be very exhausting, then you will only see the highlights. If your luck is like mine I guarantee that Old Faithful will have gone off just minutes before you arrived and will have to wait about another hour and 10-15 minutes for it to go off again kill time by walking around the upper geyser basin. When you are at Old faithful be sure to go into the Old Faithful Inn and look up when inside. When in the visitor center or the Inn they will have a sign displaying approximately when the next eruption will occur (+ or – about 10/15 minutes)
We have lived about 110 miles from the West Y’stone entrance for 50 years and go there a couple of times each summer and I still haven’t seen everything yet.
