The Linn Cove Viaduct along the Blue Ridge Parkway will be closed for surface repaving and bridge maintenance from March 1st through May 24th, 2018. During the maintenance work, a 7-mile section of the parkway will be completely closed to traffic. The section of the Tanawha hiking trail below the bridge will also be closed. The Parkway will still be open during this time and a detour will be put in place from Milepost 298.6 at Holloway Mountain Road to Milepost 305.1 at U.S. 221 to get to areas past the Viaduct.
High Country Host has created a map of the detour to make it easier to help visitors navigate the closure and still visit beautiful stops along the Parkway. See below:LinnCoveViaductClosureSprin2018
