Blue Ridge Parkway Travel Advisory

From our friends at Virtual Blue Ridge…

(Asheville, NC)— Due to recent severe winter storms and heavy accumulations of snow and ice, as well as downed trees, the majority of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed. While many sections of the Parkway are gated closed at this time, motorists should be aware that it is not physically possible to gate many hazardous sections of the Parkway.

North Carolina counties of Alleghany, Ash, and Wilkes, and Virginia counties of Franklin, Floyd, Patrick, Carroll and Grayson all have sections which are NOT gated and extremely hazardous or, in fact, impassable due to snow, ice and downed trees.
