Re-opening of Clingmans Dome Road delayed by 2 days

Wet weather has forced a two day delay for the re-opening of Clingmans Dome Road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Park website states the road is expected to re-open Monday at noon instead of this Saturday.

After Monday, the project will continue until July 1, 2010 but traffic will be managed with single lane closures on weekdays. No work will take place on weekends moving forward.

The $7.1 million project to resurface the seven mile stretch of road leading to Clingmans Dome is funded by stimulus dollars.
