Default US129 Rock Slide v.2.0

OK,

I've gotten some emails and such about the rock slide.. So, I thought I give the down low..

Here is the map the TDOT is providing regarding detour and such.



As you could see the accident point is about 2-3 miles north of the lake pull of parking area..

to see this better, here is a google map.




Currently US129 is closed from North Carolina border to the scene of rock slide. I'm reading that it would be re-opened by March 26th. I'll keep you guys updated!

Phil

Not to rain on anyones parade........ but SDOT told us kin in my neighborhood that a certain construction project was going to be over about a year ago..... lemme explain something, I live on a peninsula - one road in or out. At the end of this rd you can turn left or right. If you turn right, there's a 4 way intersection. The 4 way intersection has been under construction for over a year. Before that was finished they backed up to the 3 way and started ripping that up. Then they moved down the street and tore that up. For about 3 weeks now they've had dozers and back-hoes PARKED in the center of the 4 way intersection and no work has been done with no reasons. I live about 2 miles from the highway and because of this construction it's taken me as long as 45 miuntes to make it to the highway... I hate this shitty sometimes.

So I'll hold off on my celebration until the Dragon is awake

well everything I'm reading today says the dragon won't be open until 9/1!

Edit: I guess 9/1 is miss information! They just updated and said the contract will be awarded on Monday.

Here's where I've been keeping up with this situation. He's the owner of the Pit Stop at the end of the Dragon. http://www.dealsgap.com/

Looks like the pitstop is awaiting on a call from TDOT... I actually talked to TDOT and the representative that I spoke with stated that 26th is the open date. For some reason its not open by that time, she told me that they will post it on the TDOT site. My guess is that it will most likely open by the time we get there. If not, they need to at least open from NC into TN for those who wants to run the dragon

I'm guessing they wouldn't open the border closing unless the rockslide is clear, because if they allowed anyone on the road and something were to happen, emergency services would not be able to get on site from the north, and they probably aren't willing to take the risk, nor to depend on North Carolina to carry the burden of responsibility on the Tenn. side.

You are correct..

And I was mearly joking, hence the smiley.

We shall see tomorrow afternoon if they infact clear the area and open the road... Otherwise, there are ton of great roads in the area.
