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 extreme north end of A-10D, where it ties back into the completed highway built by TNDOT in 1995. Area #10 is cut down about halfway in this photo, but none of the embankment or undercut north of there has begun. US 23 will be relocated under the interstate and over to the west side just south of the state line, and a truck safety stop similar to the one in the photo on the northbound lanes will be built for the southbound lanes. The Appalachian Trail will also pass underneath I-26 at this location.
