The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This graphic was created during the design phase of the project to show people at the design public hearing what the cut through Buckner Gap would look like once it was completed. This image used our existing DTM (digital terrain map) and a similar DTM was made for the proposed design. The two were then merged and a 3D image created from the wireframe model. Color and shading was then added to give depth and perspective to the image. You're looking at Buckner Gap from the north side, and although we later made some design changes to the alignment and slopes, this graphic image provides a fairly accurate idea of what it will look like when the cut is completed.
