Lane closures on Gatlinburg Spur

The final phase of repaving on the Gatlinburg Spur (U.S. 441) will begin this Monday.

From Monday, September 15 through Wednesday, October 8 motorists can expect single lane closures anytime from Monday mornings through noon on Friday.

The 4.5-mile-long Spur runs between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. There are two lanes running in each direction.

A final layer of high-performance pavement will be applied to enhance friction/skid resistance, thus, providing for a safer road surface during inclement weather. The work also includes rumble strips in the shoulder of the road which alerts drivers when they are drifting off the roadway.
