Asheville I-26 Connector: Project Details
The I-26 connector will be a full interstate freeway, complete with a median and accessible only by interchanges. The connector in Asheville will join the existing I-26 freeway, which extends all the way from Charleston, South Carolina to Kingsport, Tennessee.
The I-26 connector project in Asheville is divided into 3 sections:
- Section A: Includes upgrading I-240 and intersections at Brevard Rd., Amboy Rd., and Haywood Rd. The upgraded section will run from the I-26/I-240 interchange with I-40 to the I-250 interchange at Patton Ave, located just west of the French Broad River.
- Section B: Includes building an interstate highway from the Patton Ave. interchange, to run north across the French Broad River. This new interstate will connect with US-19/23/70, located south of Broadway.
- Section C: Includes improvements to interchanges along I-40, including those at Smokey Park Highway, I-25/I-240 and Brevard Rd.
The Asheville I-26 connector improvement project is listed by NCDOT as Project I-2513.
