CHIMNEY ROCK, N.C. -
Needed road repairs will close the Chimney Rock Access at Chimney Rock State Park beginning Tuesday.

It will closed for up to three weeks as repairs are made to the main entrance road, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. 
 
This closure affects the Chimney Rock spire and its elevator access, the Outcroppings Trail and all other visitor facilities in the vicinity.
 
A 75-foot section in one lane of the road collapsed last May during a period of heavy rainfall. 

After a 21-day construction period, single-lane access to the park will be available as road repair continues.
 
Throughout the period, the park's Rumbling Bald Climbing Access will remain open.
