Check Road Conditions on the Blue Ridge Parkway with Real-Time Road Closures Map
As inclement weather affects the Blue Ridge Parkway, use the newly launched real-time closure map to check the road conditions before setting out on a Parkway journey.
Extreme weather conditions at the higher altitudes along the Parkway often force temporary closure of some segments and also cause roadway erosion that results in unexpected closures.
The Blue Ridge Parkway Road Closure Map provides real-time road closure/condition information throughout the season. It's great for residents who frequently travel the Parkway, and also for visitors who are likely unfamiliar with the weather in the mountains, so be sure to let your friends and family who are visiting know about this map.
