The Dragon’s Tail has reopened to vehicular traffic, which should please area motorcyclists.
The route, which crosses from North Carolina into Tennessee, has 318 curves in 11 miles and is famed as one of America’s best motorcycle roads.
It was closed on March 14 when a rock slide covered part of the road.
The North Carolina portion of the road will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily while crews continue the clean-up.
A British Columbia company, Pacific Blasting, has been contracted to finish the clearing by July 1. Meanwhile, local businesses, which have depended on motorcyclists for economic survival, have suffered.
