Cleanup closes 3 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway in NC

MOUNT PISGAH, N.C. (AP) - A three-mile stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina is closed for a couple of days while debris is removed from ice storms earlier this year.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported the road was closed between miles 405 and 408 west of Asheville on Monday and Tuesday. Workers are trimming trees and removing debris from winter storms.

The road is closed long-term between miles 399 and 405 because of rock slide repairs.
