Great news that Paw Paw tunnel will remain open during phase 2 construction. No need to do that tough push over the mountain. I'm 68 and I did that detour in the mud two years ago and it nearly did me in. Thank you to NPS for figuring out a way to make this happen. Now if we can get the Brunswick culvert washout fixed, I'm going to try the DC to Pgh trip one more time.

Indeed. This is good news and not having to take the detour up and over the mountain is well worth any brief delay there. Below is the latest news from the National Park Service pertaining to the Paw Paw Tunnel repairs. "The Paw Paw Tunnel is currently open. Phase 2 of construction will begin the first week of May 2019. During construction, both portals of the tunnel will remain open and flaggers will be stationed to control traffic. Visitors should expect 5-10 minute delays."
