Short Stretch Of Blue Ridge Parkway In North Carolina To Close For Bridge Repairs

Bridge repairs will require a roughly nine-mile-long stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina to close for about two months beginning April 1, 2015.

Parkway officials say the closure is necessary to to make critical repairs to Deep Gap Bridge at US 421. A detour will be signed in the area from Milepost 269.8, at Phillips Gap north of the bridge to Milepost 276.4 at the US 421 ramp. Access to Jeffress Park Picnic Area will remain open from the north end of the detour.

The closure is expected to remain in place until early June. Due to the nature of this project, complete closure of the Parkway in this section is necessary for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists, the Park Service said in a release.
