Due to heavy rain, high winds, and the threat of historic flooding, many sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway are closed through this weekend or until further notice.
View the complete list of closures and cancellations before planning your Parkway excursions, and check back regularly with our Real-Time Road Closures Interactive Map.
They advise that, above all, be smart, use extreme caution, and stay safe.
Most of the closures are in North Carolina and some are in Virginia so be sure to check the website for up-to-date information.
