Blue Ridge Parkway road closures
Blue Ridge Parkway maintenance personnel have begun a two to three week roadside cutting operation from Milepost 121.4 to Milepost 136, between U.S. Routes 220 and 221 across Bent Mountain to Adney Gap. During this period, both lanes will be closed off to traffic. The planned work will not affect travel between U.S. 220 and 460.
Affected sections will close at approximately 7:45 a.m. each weekday and re-open daily at 5:00 p.m. Those who normally commute on the Parkway may want to consider alternate routes.
Proposed closures are scheduled for:
Tuesday, November 13 – Thursday, November 15, 2012
Tuesday, November 19 – Thursday, November 21, 2012
Monday, November 26 – Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Each year Blue Ridge Parkway maintenance and resource management staff schedule work that helps control invasive vegetation growth along the Parkway, as well as insuring the safety of drivers.
