Parkway closed in Deep Gap

A section of the Blue Ridge Parkway from Milepost 270 to Milepost 281 closed Nov. 6 in order to make repairs to a bridge that crosses U.S. 421 near Boone.

A detour will be signed from Milepost 270, at Phillips Gap north of the bridge to Milepost 281 at the Old U.S. 421/221 access. According to Blue Ridge Parkway officials, critical repairs are being made to granite retaining walls and bridge abutments.

It is anticipated that the closure will be in place for approximately two months or until Jan. 1, 2014, weather depending. Visitors are asked to be aware of closure gates and detour signs in the area.
