TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Wednesday's line of storms has caused some havoc along the Natchez Trace Parkway.
Thursday, the parkway issued a travel advisory for the entire Natchez Trace Parkway.
Park rangers report numerous down trees, some blocking the roadway. Travelers are advised to exercise caution when driving on the parkway.
Maintenance employees are working to open the roadway.
"Our priority is to get the roadway open as quickly and as safely as we can," said Chief of Maintenance Barry Boyd. "That may mean just clearing the roadway of downed trees, but not the road shoulders."
