"John--While US 441 is a public highway, it's pretty clear it can't be closed to all save those who pay $30 to be eclipsed. On the other hand, I'm not certain about the spur leading from 441 to the Clingmans Dome parking area. If you…"

"John--If Hwy. 441 and TN 71 are the same, that would seem to cover matters, in part. However, what about the N. C. side? I can envision some kind of sneaky approach whereby the N. C. side wasn't covered and therefore was open to a toll. That in…"
