The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This photograph is looking almost due west. The construction for the rest area has begun along the south side of the waste site, and rock fill is being put into the "horseshoe" of the haul road. To the left can be seen Rock Cut #1 and near the edge of the picture, the location of the scenic overlook. To the right the rock buttress construction continues. Note how the haul roads keep changing location as the rising fills keep requiring different access roads being built. Sprinkle Creek Road is to the bottom of the picture. Photo taken in May 1999 by the Photogrammetry Unit.
