Road and Facility Closures

Road Closures

Weather conditions may cause temporary road closures along the parkway. Much of the parkway is located at high elevation, where the climate is colder and wetter than in the surrounding communities in the foothills. Please be aware that the parkway may be closed due to snow or ice, even at times when the weather at lower elevations is sunny and pleasant. Please check The Blue Ridge Parkway Road Closure Map ( for real-time road current closure/condition information.
