GATLINBURG, Tenn.—Routine bridge improvements will occur at four bridges in the park over the next several weeks. The following bridges will be closed for two or three days to vehicle traffic while crews complete the repairs:
  • Tremont Bridge #3 on Tremont Road will be closed January 24-25
  • Palmer Creek Bridge on Cataloochee Entrance Road will be closed January 26-27
