DETOURS TO VALLE CRUCIS AROUND HIGHWAY 105 ROAD CONSTRUCTION

“Good things come to those who wait” is an often-quoted proverb, and we believe it’s true. If you are visiting Valle Crucis in the next three years, you may experience a little wait as the Watauga River Bridge is being replaced and Highway 105 is being widened to facilitate better traffic flow. Use the information on this page to plan your route to and from Valle Crucis and the Mast Store. We promise; it’ll be worth the wait.  

Construction will take place Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Night closures can take place from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m.
