Landslide closes Hwy 441 down to 1 lane near NC/TN border

If it’s not a rockslide, it’s a landslide causing havoc for driving in and around the Smokies.  This time, it’s highway 441 in the park.  That’s the OTHER main route.  

This is the drive from Gatlinburg to Cherokee.  A landslide just past the NC/TN border has caused traffic to have to drive on just one lane.  Just to give you an idea of where this is, Newfound Gap is on the NC/TN border, so this is close to Newfound Gap. 

Find more info on this particular landslide at the link below.

  1. Such a shame, I hate to hear of all this All these landslides, rockslides and scheduled road closures for resurfacing is sure to have an adverse effect on the yearly attendance. Not to mention the danger to visitors.

  2. IS THE ROADS OPEN TO CHEROKEE?? I HEARD THERE WAS A LAND SLIDE. BUT THIS SITE SAYS IT WAS IN MARCH. THANK YOU..

    • The roads to Cherokee were never closed (unless you come south from I-40). However, the posts about the roads being closed are all older. They are back open. We actually went to Cherokee when I-40 was closed. You could get there the whole time. There were actually several landslides/rockslides.
