The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This photo is looking north toward Tennessee. US 23 runs along the right side of the photo; Sams' Gap is just visible near the top of the picture. At the bottom is the Bear Branch Road interchange and the big cleared area to the north is the A-10D construction. The contractor on that project has a big cut on each side of their Waste Area #1 within this cleared zone. Below this can be seen the location of the Laurel Creek Bridge with the southern approach nearly completed but the northern end not begun yet. A big rock buttress will be constructed between the bridge and the big cut already begun on A-10D. Photo taken in November 1998 by the Photogrammetry Unit.
