The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This photograph, looking north, shows the entire project length from US 19 all the way to the Tennessee State Line. The interchange at US 19 is at the bottom of the photograph, with US 23 just to the right of the construction for the first mile or so. North Main Street, Higgins Branch Road and Jarvis Road all cross the project, but only Higgins Branch Road will remain in its original location. The bridges across that road are visible if you look carefully. The separate section of construction at the top of the picture is the second project, A-10D. From the Tennessee Line to US 19 is about 10 miles. Photograph taken in May 1999 by the Photogrammetry Unit.
