According to the Blue Ridge National Park Service, the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed from MP 276 to MP 280, following the discovery of a cracking roadway.

Parkway officials said this type of cracking is often associated with slope instability.

As of Tuesday, officials say this section will remain closed until further assessments can be made by geotechnical engineers.
