Clean up crews are pulling twelve hour shifts to get sections of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park reopened after last week's storms.
On Monday a portion of the road east of the Townsend Wye remained off limits to visitors while bulldozers excavated debris.
That's the same place where a Georgia man died Thursday when the storm toppled a tree on to his motorcycle.
Cades Cove, the Cades Cove Loop, and several other roads in the area reopened at 6:45 Saturday evening.
Laurel Creek Road and the Little River Road from Elkmont to the Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area also reopened along with the Cades Cove Campground.
Roads and Fleets Supervisor Mark Schotters says about fifty people are a part of the effort coming from a variety of agencies.
He says it could be anywhere from 30-60 days before everything is completely restored. He says the damage to that section of the park is the worst he's seen in 16 years.
And he says the forecast could impede their progress.
"The weather, if it comes in we have to quit," says Schotters. "The root balls that are sitting up there in precarious positions will come down if we, some of them could possibly come down on top of us if we're working under them or around them when it's raining."
