The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


Bear Branch Road had to be realigned from its existing location in order to make room for the interchange and avoid affecting Laurel Creek. This photo shows the construction to relocate Bear Branch Road taking place. The white truck is sitting on the raised berm where Bear Branch Road will go, and in the background is a ridge that the road will cut through as it curves around to the interchange. The existing road is to the right of the construction, taken in late May 2000.
