Gatlinburg (AP) An eight-mile section of the Little River Road is closed this morning in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
A park spokesman says a rock slide in the Sinks area has blocked it.
The road is closed between the Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area and the Townsend park entrance.
Spokesman Bob Miller says Little River Road will be closed until at least noon.
The road should be open for the Labor Day Weekend.
