On Friday September 14, 2018, the entire 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway and all associated facilities, with the exception of the Pisgah Inn and Peaks of Otter Lodge,  will be closed at 8:00 p.m. in anticipation of high winds and heavy rains due to the remnants of Hurricane Florence. Saturated soils in combination with high winds in these areas increase the risk of rock slide and falling trees and debris. This closure will remain in effect until further notice.

All good things must be maintained over time lest they lose their luster, and the Blue Ridge Parkway is no exception. NPS has been working to maintain the roadway on the Parkway, filling potholes, ensuring a smooth driving surface, and minimizing further wear and tear from the millions who experience America's Favorite Drive each year. Resurfacing of the roadway continues throughout the Summer 2018 travel season.
