Road closure and construction to last longer then scheduled in the Great Smoky Mountains national park.

The work needed to stabilize Indian Head Cliff on Little River Road in the Tennessee side of the Great Smoky Mountains national park is taking longer than it was scheduled keeping 8 mile section of Little River Road between the Metcalf Picnic area and the Townsend Wye closed for an additional day.

When Little River Road reopens Tuesday evening the 20th it will be reduced to 1 lane while the work will have to continue for at least another week.

Hopefully Little River Road will be open completely by Memorial Day weekend as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will be busy especially between Gatlinburg and Cades Cove.
