Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER TN-35-I
Building/structure dates: 1940 initial construction
Significance: Now consisting of only a short spur into the park, the Northshore Road was originally intended to extend from Bryson City to Fontana Village. Construction on the road was discontinued by the Park Service in 1976 to preserve the wilderness in the southwestern section of the park. Local residents still protesting the cancellation of the project have recently erected a sign reading "Welcome to the Road to Nowhere, A Broken Promise, 1943-?"
