NCDOT seeking comments on new I-26 interchange; website created for project unveiled
Thursday, 16 September 2021 18:30

From Staff Reports 

Officials at the N.C. Department of Transportation are inviting the public to submit questions, comments and suggestions regarding a proposed new interchange off Interstate 26 in Buncombe County.

A project website established for this purpose contains a project area map, concepts for three potential designs, additional information, as well as a poll and open areas for comments. 

Comments will be accepted through Oct. 4.

NCDOT is proposing to build a new interchange along I-26 and a roadway extension to connect with a future state road, which is now being built by a private developer.

Ultimately, it will connect I-26 to Brevard Road (N.C. 191). 

The project area is located about six miles south of Asheville along I-26 near mile marker 35, between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the I-26 bridge over the French Broad River.

The purpose of the proposed project is to address the lack of connection between N.C. 191 and I-26 in southern Buncombe County and to accommodate current and planned growth.

The best way to submit comments or questions is by visiting the website https://www.publicinput.com/I25-exit35-buncombe, NCDOT noted.

People also may submit questions or comments by calling (984) 205-6615 and entering code 8906, or writing McCay Coates, PE, Division Project Manager, Division 13, 55 Orange Street, Asheville, N.C. 28801.
