Repairs underway on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Written by 

Repairs on the Blue Ridge Parkway will continue through August between mileposts 383 and 389 near Asheville, part of a project to repair several dangerous ruts.

Work will take place 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, possibly causing delays due to a single lane closure.

Landscape architects designed the Parkway with earthen and sod shoulders to enhance the scenic experience, but over time impacts from heavy use and roadside parking have left some road edges with ruts as deep as 12 inches, creating a safety hazard and potential for erosion issues.

Parkway road conditions are updated in real time at www.nps.gov/maps/blri/road-closures.
