Following are details about the renovations…
From the press release:
The National Park Service has begun work to replace the Natchez Trace Parkway’s existing Glenrock comfort station located near milepost 364 in Wayne County, Tennessee. The construction activities started on Monday, July 9th, and will extend through mid-October. The entire Glenrock picnic area will be closed to the public for the duration of the construction
Replacing this comfort station is another of a series of projects aimed at improving the restroom facilities along the Natchez Trace Parkway. Every effort will be made to complete the work within the ninety day construction period in order to minimize impacts to the public.
The majority of the work will take place adjacent to the Parkway, and should not impede traffic flow. However, travelers can expect to see construction personnel and equipment, and are asked to exercise caution while traveling through this area.
Questions related to this work can be directed to the Parkway’s Chief of Maintenance, Rusty Rawson, at (662) 680-4020.
We've lived in the Nashville area since 2001 — and all 3 of our houses have been situated relatively close to the Natchez Trace Parkway. To me, the 'The Trace' is a hidden gem of Nashville — a place to go when you want to get away from it all and be one with nature. I've hiked it, biked it, motorcycled it, walked it with my dogs, and driven my car on The Natchez Trace Parkway more times than I can count! This is where I share some of my favorite things to do along the Natchez Trace Parkway — which runs 444 miles from Nashville Tennessee to Natchez Mississippi and through parts of Alabama. When I'm not enjoying the beautiful outdoors along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
