Park to conduct road striping on Newfound Gap Road

A contractor for Great Smoky Mountains National Park will perform striping operations in NC beginning Wednesday, June 12 through Tuesday, June 18 along Newfound Gap Road from Newfound Gap south to Cherokee, along with various secondary roads throughout the NC section of the Park.

Operations will be completed between 7p.m. and 12a.m. for seven consecutive nights. Weather delays due to rain could cause the project to continue beyond June 18. During the operation, traffic will be reduced to one lane for short sections. Motorists should use caution when they encounter the road striping operations and pay close attention to traffic control devices along the roadway.

For more information about road conditions, please visit the Park’s website at www.nps.gov/grsm and or call the Park’s Road and Weather Information Line at 865-436-1200.
