Construction on Foothills Parkway

Park officials are advising hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders to be on the lookout for construction vehicles on a 9-mile unopened portion of the Foothills Parkway beginning this Thursday, November 12th.

Although seldom used by motorized vehicles, the stretch of gravel road east of Walland, TN is popular with outdoorsmen.

Construction work will go on Monday through Friday for six weeks ending December 22, while a Park contractor does some core drilling at the far eastern end of the roadway.
