Parkway maintenance causes closures

Boom axe operations along the Blue Ridge Parkway will result in closures at various locations along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the coming weeks.

The section between mile markers 455 and 469 — from just north of the Soco Gap parking lot through the Parkway’s southern terminus — will be closed during weekdays through Dec. 15.

Closures in affected sections will be from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and will affect all users — hikers, bikers and motorists. The road will be open on the weekend.

Further north, the sections between mile markers 317 and 324, and between 355 and 367.6, will be closed from Jan. 2-26.
