Parkway visits down again

Asheville Citizen-Times (NC)

2006.01.16

Recent years have not fared well for the parkway. The fluctuation of gas prices,longer summer-like seasons and winter storms may have caused enthusiasts to avoid making a visit to check out the beauty and views along the route. Not bringing in the visitors, I can see communities struggling in the restaurant and hotel businesses where income may be decreasing.

The endangered views in the Roanoke Valley could be a factor. You can now see a car dealership and a Wal-Mart and Lowe's clearly from the parkway there.

Why haven't any of these reports of lower visitorship talked about the fact that the road had been washed out? I mean if there is anything that is going to keep me away from a place, a ROAD CLOSED sign is one pretty sure fire way. Have they even premanently repaired the slides and sink holes from Frances and Ivan?
