The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This is the right hand side of the Area #2 cut, and a variety of construction vehicles parked underneath it. From right to left, there are two big drilling rigs used for the production blasting, three presplit drilling rigs, a fuel truck, a small trackhoe, a maintenance truck, and three articulated dump trucks. The small white wheeled box in front of the fuel truck is a powered construction light. The rock slope has been cut down two layers and from the top of the soil cut to the bottom, is about 50' deep so far. Photo taken July 1999.
