Section of parkway closed to vehicles

Written by 

out parkwayA 21-mile section of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina is closed — from Ox Creek Road to Mount Mitchell State Park.

 

The closure is the result of structural damage to a section of the road and shoulder areas caused by recent heavy rains. 

Federal Highway Administration engineers are helping park managers to determine the extent of the damage and will make recommendations for necessary repairs.

A detour route is available, which directs traffic from Asheville along Interstate 40 to U.S. Route 221. However, pedestrians and bicyclists are allowed on the parkway until construction begins or if conditions change. Mount Mitchell State Park remains open and accessible from the northern approach along the parkway.

This Must Be the Place

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
