"There is no other bridge like it on the Blue Ridge Parkway," lamented Gary Johnson, Chief of Planning and Professional Services for the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Gary Johnson, the chief resource ranger at the Blue Ridge Parkway, often consults those maps - 850 sheets in all - as the guiding management vision.
"It is a landscape that is very labor intensive," Johnson said. Gary Johnson, the chief of resource management on the Parkway, is often torn between stop-gap measures versus more costly but permanent repairs. When a stone wall starts to crumble, he can slap some mortar in the holes and stuff the falling rocks back in place. But in the long run, the wall needs to be rebuilt on a better foundation. A batch of federal stimulus money is allowing the Parkway to rebuild 31,000 feet of rock wall this year, which posed its own dilemma: balancing the historic character of the stone walls with a modern safety design. At two-feet-high, the rock walls aren't terribly effective as guard rails, but Johnson is debating how high to make them without compromising their charm. The other question is whether to use traditional, dry-stack techniques versus super-strength mortar. Park managers have learned to balance aesthetics with safety. For example, the historic wooden guardrails along the Parkway are reinforced by steel banding on the back that are not visible from the road. When Johnson came to the Parkway in 1994 as its chief landscape architect, he was humbled by the footsteps he followed in. Nothing is taken lightly, he said. "I often have the thought when we are making a design decision and are doing something differently than in the past I think, 'What would Stan do?'" Johnson said.
