ONE LANE TRAFFIC CONTROL, MP 241 - 242.4
REMINDER: Roadwork continues in a one-mile section of Parkway, commonly known as Ice Rock, from MP242.4 at Alligator Back Parking Area to MP241. The project involves twenty-four-hour, one-lane traffic control until November 1, 2014.
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.

Several of the early designers, architects, and engineers of the Blue Ridge Parkway worked together on New York's Westchester County Parkway, incorporating many of the same design elements.
