Roads in the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park will be getting a much-needed facelift over the next few weeks. The National Park Service and the Federal Highway Administration are partnering to improve roads throughout the park starting as early as this week and continuing into the fall.
The road improvement project will include Bartlett Park, Pinnacle Road and Overlook, Wilderness Road Campground and Picnic Area, Sugar Run Overlook Road (KY-988), and other roads and parking areas throughout the park. Access to Wilderness Road Campground, picnic shelters, and other amenities will be maintained but may be limited in specific areas while work is occurring. Parking areas may be closed and delays while traveling park roads should be expected throughout the duration of the project.
