BREAKING: Large rock slide has closed the spur road heading to Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge. Traffic is now being routed to the Pigeon Forge bound lanes. That road is now divided into a 2 lane road, one lane headed in each direction.
The good news… this is not June. I’d imagine it would be best to avoid the spur if you can. There are back-roads if you know where they are. If you’re not aware of those, stop by a visitor center and ask for direction. Quite frankly, they can be very confusing. I know where several of them are, and I STILL get confused pretty often. If they were simple to understand, I’d post them here.
