75 Years of the Blue Ridge Parkway The Blue Ridge Parkway turned 75 this year but the wildly popular scenic drive has endured a number of challenges to its existence. Constant threats from development, infrastructure issues and, more recently, pollution have taken a toll on the parkway. We'll talk with two men charged with protecting the byway and the land it meanders through. Join us for a scenic tour of the history and the future of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
