    ...between Boone NC and Roanoke VA? Got stuck down by Ashville a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd check the way before hand this time. BRP website not very helpful.

    Did they close for ice/snow? I'd call them directly, never know what's going on up there.

    Have you seen this??

    "These closures can be fast-changing and are updated on our park information line at (828) 298 0398."


    FYI, if you come to Roanoke via the BRP during a week day, you will hit some road repair once you start down the mountain heading to the Roanoke Valley. Nothing major though, just a short delay.

    whats the fastest/ better way around the closure at Mitchell?

    Down to 40, or above (110 to 197 to Stoney Fork rd.)?
