The following is an update from the National Park Service regarding recent closures and repair projects on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Roanoke Region in Virginia's Blue Ridge.

JUNE 8, 2023 UPDATE: Slope repairs between milepost 121.4 and 136 are complete and the parkway in that section is now open. Motorists are asked to be mindful of wildlife in the area when traveling this section.

In addition, the previously announced bridge projects at milepost 61.6 (VA Route 130) and 121.4 (US 220) are now estimated to begin in late June. The project has been delayed due to material supply chain issues. The project is expected to be complete by the end of September and will primarily be managed with single lane daytime closures; visitors may experience full nighttime closures with short detours.
