Closures for Paving
Nearly $40 million rehabilitation is underway. The project consists of complete rehabilitation of the main line motor-road, mill & overlay of ramps and pull-off areas. Sections of the roadway and possibly camping areas will be closed while being reworked. Fines for entering the closed areas are up to $5000. Please see our Alerts for current closed areas and detour directions.

The Parkway was designed in the 1930s for motor vehicles. The designation as a Bicycle Route came afterwards. The lanes are substandard at 11' wide. The speed limit is 50 mph in most places and in some areas, traffic is heavy during rush hour. Aesthetic curves and heavily forested areas add to the beauty of the Parkway. It is your job to keep safe!
