Chimney Rock To Close For Weeks
Chimney Rock State Park staff say the park will shut its gates for about a month starting sometime in January, and possibly as early as next week.
The N.C. Department of Transportation will be repairing a crack in the main entrance road caused by heavy spring rains.
The closure was planned for the winter because that is the time when the it sees the lowest number of visitors.
A start date had yet to be determined Tuesday. The projected end date has not been announced, because the length of time the repairs will take is largely dependent on the weather.
