Title The 'Open Road' Not Always Open
Date April 14, 1962
Description Brief editorial in which the author responds to a "Backtalk" contributor inquiring why the Blue Ridge Parkway cannot be open to traffic before the first of May. Though the author acknowledges such decisions are supported by research, argues for a partial roadblock considering safe weather conditions.
