Blue Ridge Parkway Pavement Preservation

Project Description

Pavement preservation treatment will be one of the following methods: chip seal with fog seal, microsurfacing or thin asphalt overlay of Blue Ridge Parkway from north of State Route 215 (Milepost (MP) 424.0 - close to Devil's Courthouse) to US Route 276 (MP 412.8 - close to Wagon Road Gap) including adjacent pull-offs. Additional work will include permanent pavement markings. Because of funding considerations, the project will be split into several schedules (options). Road will be open during the construction.
