Congestion ideas for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

SEVIERVILLE, Tennessee (WDEF) – The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is turning to the public for ideas on how to reduce congestion at some of its most popular spots.

The park on the Tennessee-North Carolina border saw a record 12-point-5 million visitors in 20-19, and has set monthly visitation records in June, July, and August of this year.

The park says this has caused congested roads, overflowing parking lots, trampled vegetation, and long lines.

The park is asking for public input on the problem through virtual workshops, online forms, and direct mail.
