Great Smoky Mountains officials announced today on their Temporary Road and Facilities Closures page that Wears Gap Road will be closed this Thursday and Friday (Jan 19-20) for tree and brush removal. The project will improve sight distance around narrow curves and help with visibility of road signs.
The secondary entrance connects US 321 in Wears Valley to Little River Road, roughly nine miles west of Gatlinburg.
This morning's update also mentioned two other temporary road closures:
• Old NC-284 between Big Creek and Cataloochee is closed due to ice and snow.
• Forge Creek Road in Cades Cove is closed due to mud.
