Section Of Blue Ridge Parkway Closed In Deep Gap After Cracking Roadway

A portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Deep Gap is closed after cracking of the road. The section is from MilePost 276 to MilePost 280 near Parkway School.

 This type of cracking is often associated with slope instability, according to a Facebook post by the Blue Ridge Parkway, and this section will remain closed until assessments can be made by geo-technical engineers.
