Visitor Information

Entering ORNL

ORNL welcomes visitors to the Laboratory. However, because of increased security requirements, we've made some changes in how the site is accessed.

Bethel Valley Road, which is the main access route to Oak Ridge National Laboratory from both directions, is now closed to the public. If you are planning a visit to ORNL, your host will arrange for you to proceed past entrance stations on Bethel Valley Road leading to the Laboratory's Visitor Center. It is very important, if you are not a DOE or DOE contractor employee, to arrange your visit to ORNL ahead of time.

If you're not sure how to arrange your visit, contact ORNL Visitor Services (, 865.574.7199).
