The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This aerial photo was taken in February 2000 by NCDOT's Photogrammetry Unit. It shows the northern end of A-10C, specifically the interchange location at Bear Branch Road. The bridge crossing Laurel Creek on Bear Branch Road is clearly visible, as is US 23 to the east. The curly road to the right and bottom of the picture is a detour used while US 23 and the bridge was under construction. It will be removed at a later date. The exit and entrance ramps are starting to take shape, and you can see how close they will be to the end of the bridge. Bear Branch Road is also taking shape to the left of I-26.
