Don't think many hikers would care about this closure, as the crossing is only 
about four miles from Rt. 16.  However, if you need to get there the AT can be 
reached from Cedar Springs, as far as I know.  You might want to check with 
Mt. Rogers NRA, if you plan driving there.

I did it in a .pdf.  That's usually easier to mail than a .jpg.
