Is this still a thing? The road was paved and striped when we went in last Sunday, and nothing new going on Friday when we left. The dogwoods, waterfalls and flooded meadows were amazing.

Most likely, they want to put down ANOTHER LAYER of asphalt on the road.



Leave No Trace
Count on gov't workers to cover their asphalt.

Nope. It isn't government works that do the paving. Most likely a quick paving job was done to get the road open since there was some urgency. Now they need to do the real paving job so it will last.
