Blue Ridge Parkway officials are asking motorists to avoid traveling the parkway at least through Wednesday, especially on sections in Virginia affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Parkway officials are concerned that a large number of trees may come down as a result of further winds.

All gated sections along the parkway in Virginia have now been closed and officials expect the gated sections to remain closed at least through Wednesday.
