Parkway closed and under repair

Written by 

Traveling from Haywood or Jackson counties to Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway won’t be possible until spring as a portion of the scenic road has been closed for repair.

The Parkway will be closed between Milepost 405 at N.C. 151 (just north of the Mt. Pisgah area) and Milepost 399 at Pine Mountain Tunnel until spring 2011. All traffic — foot, bicycle and motor vehicle — will be prohibited because of potential danger in the work area.

For southbound traffic, take U.S. 19 to N.C. 215 in Canton and then to U.S. 276 (or remain on N.C. 215) to get back to the parkway. Or, follow N.C. 191 to N.C. 280, connecting to U.S. 276 in Brevard and back to the parkway south of Pisgah Inn. The detours can be taken in the opposite direction for northbound traffic.
