Mammoth Cave National Park will temporarily close Flint Ridge Road on Friday, June 5, and the Mammoth Cave Picnic Area from Friday, June 5 through Sunday, June 7 to all traffic. The temporary closure on Flint Ridge Road is expected to last from around 7 am to 7 pm. The closures are required for crack sealing and paving prework that is a part of the park's ongoing pavement preservation project.

Travelers can expect to find Flint Ridge Road closed from the intersection with Mammoth Cave Entrance Road to the Park Ridge/Mammoth Cave Park Road intersection, and the picnic area closed at its intersection with visitor center parking area. The pavement preservation project is being coordinated by the United States Federal Highway Administration and National Park Service and will extend the life of the paved areas throughout the park.
