ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Blue Ridge Parkway officials announced Thursday morning the continued closure from milepost 106 to milepost 112.

This section of parkway was closed on Friday, September 6, when officials from Federal Highways Administration discovered settling of subsurface material under the roadway that was causing unsafe driving conditions.

Those who need to detour around this section of parkway are asked to take the following route:
• Southbound Detour: Those travelling southbound from Parkway milepost 106 should take route 460 West to Route 24/Gus Nicks Blvd. East to the Parkway on-ramp.
• Northbound Detour: Those travelling northbound from Parkway milepost 112 should take Route 24/Gus Nicks Blvd. West to route 460 East to the Parkway on-ramp.
