BRP closure MP 376-355
 
The BRP is currently closed from Ox Creek RD (MP 376) to Mt Mitchell (MP355). There were "structural roads cracks" noted last week and the road is closed until further notice. More evidence of too much freakin rain.

You can go from NC80 to Mt Mitchell, but you can't get to MT Mitchell from Asheville. Ox Creek is the last exit (Weaverville) that you can go before the gates forbid your travels north. The closure is south of Mitchell, north of Asheville.

For those that care.....this has been re-opened with two lanes like normal, but the real work/repair will begin after the leaf peeping season.

Thanks for the update! I've been avoiding the area.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is now open north of Asheville to Mt Mitchell. It had been closed all winter for road repairs. If you access the BRP from Ox Creek rd- be careful. That road was used by all the asphalt trucks and is now a total mess.

It appears the BRP is open from it's beginning in VA to the end in Cherokee!
