Heavy Rains Earlier This Year Force Two Western NC Roads to Close

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Forest Service has temporally closed two roads in the Pisgah National Forest because of heavy rains earlier this year.

Neals Creek Road in Yancy County is closed from South Toe River Road to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Stony Fork Road in Buncombe County is also closed. It runs from the intersection with Graggy Garden Road and runs to the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

Forest Service engineers are surveying damage to the roads after storms dumped twelve inches of rain in the area. The Forest Service says they are unsafe.

A reopening date has not been set.

The two roads can be used for hiking or other non-motorized purposes.

Users should use caution when approaching washed-out sections of the roads.
