Blue Ridge Parkway banned to cyclists?

I have heard rumors of this happening this week and finally read an article from Bicycle Retailer this morning.  Blue Ridge plan alarms cyclists.

I grew up with the Blue Ridge Parkway in my back yard and enjoyed it so much. We would go hiking, camping and take long drives to enjoy the view. I have wanted to return with my road bike to experience it as a cyclist. I really hope this banned does not happen.
