While we’ve begun enjoying the beautiful spring weather, the Blue Ridge Parkway is still trying to recover from harsh winter storms.
There are road closures still in place due to downed trees and debris in the roadway.
For an updated look at these closures you can visit our dedicated Blue Ridge Parkway Road Conditions and Closures page on Virtual Blue Ridge, or call the Parkway Hotline at 828-298-0398.
