Highway 441 Reopens

Updated: Monday, May 13 2013, 09:37 PM EDT

The major road through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is open again.  It closed in January when heavy rains washed away 200 feet of the highway connecting Cherokee and Gatlinburg. The estimated completion date was May 15th. But crews from Phillips and Jordan out Robbinsville got the work done early and collected a 500 thousand dollar bonus. Local businesses say they depend on Highway 441 for their income. Cherokee leaders say they lost one million dollars in revenue during the three-month road closure.
