Great Smoky Mountains National Park announced that a pavement preservation project along Clingmans Dome Road begins this month during the seasonal winter closure. When the road opens to the public for the 2022 season on April 1, the paving work will continue with single-lane closures through Friday, September 2, 2022. The lane closures along the seven-mile roadway are necessary to safely and efficiently complete the project.
Motorists are asked to reduce speeds and use extra caution when traveling through the work zone. For more information about road closures, please follow SmokiesRoadsNPS on Twitter or visit the park website at www.nps.gov/grsm.
