One of the five emergency sluice gates along this section of I-26. This one is just north of the Laurel Creek Bridge for the truck escape ramp. All the runoff from the escape ramp flows through this basin and sluice gate, so if a truck's fuel or cargo ruptures after it enters the ramp, closing the gate can prevent the streams from being contaminated.
