The Blue Ridge Parkway announced the temporary closure of the access ramps to the Parkway at Virginia Route 250. During the week of August 19, 2013, each of the two access ramps will be closed at separate times to allow for repaving. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park at Rockfish Gap will remain open during the work, with traffic re-routed to the open ramp. Each of the ramp closures is expected to last one day, and will occur during daylight hours. The work is part of an on-going construction project on the Parkway from Milepost 0 at Rockfish Gap to Milepost 15.6 at Love Gap.
