Park Announces Upcoming Repairs on Park Roads

Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials announced roadwork on secondary roads in Tennessee from April 15 through April 22. Motorists should expect single lane closures on Wear Cove Gap Tuesday, April 15 through Thursday, April 17 while crews repair shoulders and also on Campbell Lead Road on Tuesday, April 22 while crews complete road surface repairs on the bridge. On Wednesday, April 16, Parsons Branch Road will be entirely closed to all traffic, including pedestrians, while road crews re-gravel the roadway.

"Park crews have been busy making sure all our roads are in good shape for the summer season after the cold, wet winter," said Acting Facility Management Chief Charlie Sellars. "By repairing these potholes, shoring up shoulders, and replacing gravel, we are able to provide a safer and more enjoyable driving experience for everyone." All repair work will be completed mid-week to minimize disruptions to park visitors and neighboring communities.  

For more information about trail closures, please visit the Park’s website at www.nps.gov/grsm or call the Backcountry Information Office at 865-436-1297.
