After many Smoky Mountain National Parks roads and trails were finally opened for the spring season, a frequently-used thoroughfare is once again closed due to inclement winter weather.

Clingmans Dome Road is closed due to ice and snow, according to a tweet from the park’s road information Twitter. 

US Highway 441/ Newfound Gap Road from Gatlinburg, Tenn to Cherokee, NC is open. A paving project on Laurel Creek, Townsend Entrance and Tremont Roads will continue to cause single-lane closures and traffic delays on weekdays through June 15.
