Section Of Blue Ridge Parkway Closed
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- The recent heavy rains have forced the closure of a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The area closed is between Asheville and Mount Pisgah, from the French Broad River to the Pisgah Campground Country Store.

Engineers with the Federal Highway Administration determined Wednesday that the amount of rain that has fallen, combined with the forecast of more rain, created a high risk of landslides.

There was a landslide on the slope in question in 2002 and it has been closely monitored since being repaired.

That part of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed until further notice.
