Rockslide shuts-down Newfound Gap Road

Update: U.S. 441 (Newfound Gap Road) is now reopened.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

A rockslide in the Smokies on U.S. 441 (Newfound Gap Road) yesterday evening has shut down the road to all traffic from Gatlinburg to Cherokee, NC.

The slide occurred near Collins Creek roughly six miles north of Cherokee and has impacted both sides of the road.

The road is expected to open sometime mid-morning today.
