U.S. Highway 441, Newfound Gap Road between Gatlinburg, Tenn., and Cherokee, N.C. will temporarily close Tuesday. Smokies officials said they are expecting winds and storms.
This is not the first time Smokies roads were closed due to winds this week. High winds in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park over the weekend knocked down trees and blew debris into roadways closing roads from Sunday through Monday morning.
