Boone Fork Parking Access Affected by Blue Ridge Parkway Closures

Closures on the Blue Ridge Parkway for maintenance on the Linn Cove Viaduct will affect access to the Boone Fork Parking Lot from March 1st to May 24th, 2018.

A traffic detour will be put in place from Milepost 298.6 (Holloway Mountain Rd) to Milepost 305.1 (US 221). Gates will be located at MP 303.6, Wilson Creek Overlook on the north and MP 305.1, US 221 on the south end of the work zone.

The Parkway will be closed to all uses including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians within the closed area. The closed area includes the trail areas beneath the viaduct.

The Boone Fork Parking Area will be accessible from the north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but not from the south.
