Blue Ridge Parkway Crack Attracts Tourists

It's not the rippling mountain views. It's not the chance to spot a black bear or a waterfall. The newest tourist attraction on the parkway appears to be a giant crack in the asphalt.

The crack, running down the center line of the roadway just north of the Tanbark Ridge Tunnel and first noticed nearly two weeks ago, is now more than 300 feet long, more than 6 inches wide and several feet deep. The northbound side is a couple of inches lower than the southbound lane.
