A three-mile section of the Blue Ridge Parkway west of Asheville will be closed Monday and Tuesday while workers trim trees and remove debris from ice storms this winter.
The section affected is from Milepost 405 near the N.C. 151 intersection west to Milepost 408 near Pisgah Inn. The road will be closed 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. daily.
Contractors will also be doing cleanup work in the broader area from Milepost 383 at N.C. 191 to Milepost 411 at Wagon Road Gap and that work may cause brief delays. The parkway will remain open in those areas except for the Milepost 405-408 closure and from Milepost 399 to 405, which is closed long-term because of slide repair.
