The Great Smoky Mountains National Park said the Clingmans Dome Tower will reopen to the public today, July 30.

The Clingmans Dome observation tower in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was closed for more than half the month of July to complete a final surface overlay along the tower ramp as part of a major rehabilitation project that began last year, according to park officials.

The work was supposed to have been finished earlier in the summer, but the rainy weather delayed it.

Park officials said visitors should be aware there will still be construction equipment along the trail.
