The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This is the last major location of excavation left on A-10D, just north of the Laurel Creek Bridge. Called Area 6, it is only a side cut; a big rock buttress has been built on the right side to keep the construction out of the stream below it. The height between the top of the cut on the left and the bottom of the buttress on the right is about 1000'. A truck escape ramp will be built into the solid rock on the left side.
