The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina

Construction of the Higgins Road Bridges on the south end of A-10C. The contractor is working on the southern end bent for the two bridges on the right side of the photograph. The northern end bent and the two interior sets of columns are already built. Once the remaining end bent is constructed, the deck will begin to be placed. The two bridges taper toward each other from south to north as the highway median narrows from 46' south of the bridges to 22' north of them. Each bridge has its own alignment and grade to provide the contractor accurate information through this critical area.
