  • Glenwood & Pedlar RD's, Petites Gap Road Intermittent Closure

    Beginning approximately April 30, 2018, sections of the Petites Gap Road (Forest Road #35) will be intermittently closed for road maintenance.  The intermittent closure will begin at the end of the State maintained road (SR 781) and run eastward toward the Blue Ridge Parkway for approximately 2 1/2 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 the Parkers Gap Road (FR #812).  During the closure, repairs and maintenance will include repair of road damage from past storm events, installation of new culverts, additional gravel, and grading of the road.  This road maintenance should be completed within 60 days.  These road and general maintenance activites will improve the long-term sustainability of the road.
