The Taneytown Road entrance to the new Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center complex was closed yesterday afternoon and this morning in order to repair a road that has not held up to the heavy traffic. Some visitors attempting to leave the visitor center and take the self-guided auto tour are confused, and frustrated because detour signs were not posted. This view was taken from the south facing north at approximately 10:55 AM on Thursday, July 17, 2008.
