Hey thanks! Good to know. I'm just glad that no one was seriously hurt.
We were planning to head that way in Jan nxt year - fingers crossed it will be cleared by then :-)

I found this on wsoctv 9. Special thanks to Jamie Bowers for turning a rockslide into a senic tour

"SCENIC" I-40 ROCKSLIDE DETOUR

1.Heading west from Asheville on I-40, take Exit 27/US 74/Great Smoky Mountains Expressway.
2.If it's near lunch or dinner, consider stopping at the historic Jarrett House in Dillsboro (take US 441 South into Dillsboro - just a few minutes off Highway 74, and well worth it!).
3.From Dillsboro, continue west on Highway 74.
4.Turn right onto US 441 North (toward Cherokee).
5.Follow US 441 through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
6.In Gatlinburg, turn right onto US 321 and follow to I-40.
7.You'll rejoin I-40 near Newport, TN, just across the NC/TN state line.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge is a blast. Anyone been to Dollywood lately?! ...nephews loved the Stampede

Haven't been to Dollywood yet but definitely planning on going to Splash Country when we head through the area this Spring. Looking forward to getting wet and having fun!!
