The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


The pipe segments are where the access road for Escape Ramp #1 is located. The pea gravel bed will be just to the left of it. This ramp is over 1000' long and on a 4% downgrade, which is why it is so long. The big rocks will be removed before construction is completed. In the background, the bulge in the fill is where a turnaround will be built for the towtrucks to use, and a hazardous waste basin will be located there too. Photo taken in June 2001.
