Earlier in the week GSMNP officials announced a couple of upcoming road closings you may want to make note of in case you plan to visit sometime during the late fall:
• Old NC-284 between Big Creek and Cataloochee is schedeled to be closed for approximately two weeks between mid-November and early December for bridge repair. The actual dates of the closure will be posted on the Smokies website once they become available.
• Cades Cove Loop Road will be closed for two days during the week of November 28-December 2 for hemlock woolly adelgid spraying. Spray operations are weather dependent. Exact dates will be posted on their website once they are determined.
