Intermittent Closures of Petites Gap Road (FR #35)
A section of Petites Gap Road %3AForest Road #35%3A on the Glenwood and Pedlar Ranger Districts, will close beginning as early as Monday, November 6, 2017 for road maintenance. The intermittent closure begins at the end of the State-maintained road, and runs eastward toward the Blue Ridge Parkwy for approximately two and half miles. During culvert replacement, the road may be impassable for several hours. Through-traffic should plan on using alternate routes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, such as Parkers Gap Road %3AForest Road #812%3A. During the closure, road repair will include repairing damage from past storm events, installing new culverts, and adding gravel. This road maintenance will be complete within 30 days. These road and gravel maintenance activities will improve the long-term sustainability of the road.
