(Asheville, NC) The Blue Ridge Parkway will begin a project to reconstruct pavement in the Sherrill Cove Tunnel at Milepost 466 and the Rattlesnake Mountain Tunnel at Milepost 465 beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, November 1, 2010. Pavement reconstruction will involve milling the pavement surface and repaving through the tunnel. Milling and repaving, replacing centerline and edge striping, installing pavement markers, and other related repairs will require the tunnels to operate under one-lane flagmen controlled traffic for the entire week of November 1-5, 2010.
Visitors are advised to be aware of flagmen in the area. Reconstruction work is expected to be completed and the tunnel open to traffic by Friday, November 5th.
