As a result of the adverse, wintery weather conditions, the Natchez Trace Parkway has issued a travelers advisory for the sections of Parkway in northern Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee.
The Natchez Trace Parkway is closed from milepost 429 to the northern terminus at 442.5. This will affect the on-ramps at Tennessee Highways 100, 96, and 46 (Pinewood Road). Travelers are strongly advised to not use the Parkway in Tennessee and Alabama.
From U.S. Highway 82 (milepost 204) northward to the Alabama line, roads are slick and bridges are icy. The Mississippi section of the Parkway is becoming hazardous as the temperature drops.
Forecasted conditions tonight and over the next few days are for lower temperatures with accumulation of snow and ice.
Further advisories may be posted. Current weather information is available through your local radio and television stations. For up-to-date Parkway road information call (662) 680-4027 or (662) 680-4000.
In the event of an emergency on the Natchez Trace Parkway, call Park Dispatch at (800) 300-PARK (7275) or 911.
