The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina


This photo was taken at the grade separation between US 23 and I-26 at Sams' Gap near the Tennessee border. When the final connection is made to Tennessee's completed portion, US 23 will be relocated straight into the existing portion of US 23 in the background. The wide section right behind the barricade is for an Appalachian Trail parking lot. The Trail will pass under I-26 at this grade separation as well as US 23. Photo taken in January 2003.
