Parkway reopens south of Blowing Rock

Staff Reports

 Blue Ridge Parkway Superintendent Mark Woods is pleased to announce that a section of the Parkway from Milepost 376 at Ox Creek Road to Milepost 355, near the entrance to Mt. Mitchell State Park, is once again open for travel.   This popular stretch of motor road was closed for stabilization work on a failed slope just north of Tanbark Ridge Tunnel at Milepost 374, the site of last summer’s well-known “crack.”
With this repair project complete approximately three weeks ahead of schedule, all 469 miles of Parkway motor road are now open for visitor access and enjoyment.  The popular Craggy Gardens Picnic Area and Visitor Center, at Milepost 364, which had been closed during this repair project, will open May 9, 2014, along with the majority of other Parkway facilities reopening for the season on that date.  The full schedule of 2014 seasonal openings and visitor services along the Blue Ridge Parkway is available at http://www.nps.gov/blri.
