The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This is the nearly completed US 23 bridge near the TN state line. Only the bridge rails and the median barrier are left to build, and you can see the median barrier steel reinforcement sticking out of the bridge deck. Notice how threatening the sky looks, and the amount of snow on the ground. This is the highest part of I-26, at nearly 3800' above sea level, and bad weather occurs regularly up here in the winter.
