Icy conditions span the entire Parkway from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN
TUPELO, MS – Natchez Trace Parkway has issued a travel advisory from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN due to adverse winter weather. The Natchez Trace Parkway is closed from Milepost 429 – 442. We anticipate further closures as conditions deteriorate.
Travelers are advised not to use the Parkway due to icy conditions on most bridges and some sections of the motor road. Forecasted weather over the next several days calls for lower temperatures with some accumulation of snow and ice. Poor weather may cause trees to fall across the road. Staff will not respond to downed trees until conditions are safe to do so.
Parkway Visitor Center at Milepost 266 and Mount Locust at Milepost 15.5 will close at 3:30 pm today. These facilities as well as some sections of the motor road will remain closed through the holiday weekend.
Current weather information is available through your local radio and television stations. Parkway conditions will be updated via our website, www.nps.gov/natr and on Facebook @NatchezTraceParkwayNPS. Dial 911 or Park Dispatch at (800) 300-PARK (7275) in the event of an emergency on the Parkway.
