Blue Ridge Parkway to build temporary detour to re-open popular 20-mile stretch

Blue Ridge ParkwayThe Blue Ridge Parkway is taking an unusual step to re-open a popular 20-mile stretch before the fall foliage season arrives. Last month, earth started giving ground where the roadway runs along a hillside in the North Carolina mountains. Crews will build a temporary detour around the trouble spot, permitting its re-opening for the busy September and October months. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
