Superintendent Patrick Reed announced that most park facilities closed at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday because of conditions caused by a winter storm.
“The visitor center, tours, the Mammoth Cave Hotel, and park offices will be closed for the remainder of the day,” said Reed.
Park maintenance crews and rangers will maintain the Mammoth Cave Parkway, the Park City Road, Cave City Road, Green River Ferry Road as long as conditions remain safe. The Brownsville Road is closed, as well as Flint Ridge Road and Houchin Ferry Road. Green River Ferry will remain in operation as long as conditions remain safe; for current status of ferry operations, please call 270-758-2166.
“Since last night we have had snow, then rain, then more snow,” added Reed. “Temperatures are forecast to plummet this afternoon into the teens. We ask that all motorists obey road closure signs and drive slowly and carefully as they travel through the park.”
