Road Work Slows Access to Popular Park

KINGSPORT–Repair work begins on a sagging road that leads to a popular recreation spot.

Road crews have reduced Bays Mountain Park Rd. to a single lane of alternating traffic as they try to reinforce the foundation and shoulder. Heavy traffic and natural erosion have weakened the road bed to the point that repairs are needed.

Construction is expected to last about three weeks. Officials say visitors to Bays Mountain Park should expect traffic delays, especially during nice weather.
