A traffic light on the Blue Ridge Parkway?
Parkway officials urge all visitors to observe timers set on stop lights from MP242.4 at Alligator Back Parking Area to MP241. Work in the area involves 24-hour, 1-lane traffic control until November 2, 2014, when a full closure goes into effect.
Tunnels Along the Parkway / Watch out for bicycles!
There are twenty five Parkway tunnels in North Carolina and one in Virginia. These are listed below by milepost, length, maximum height (over the center of the road), and minimum height (over the edge of the road). Especially if you are driving a large motor home, you may want to take notice of some of these while you are making your plans.
