Asheville - Repairs to a bridge on Future I-26/U.S. 19/23 will require the closure of one southbound lane on Wednesday, May 24.
The left southbound lane near mile marker 22 will be closed at 9 a.m. for maintenance work on the bridge over Old Marshall Highway. The lane closure reduces weight and vibrations, which will allow workers to safely perform the maintenance under the bridge.
NCDOT hopes to have the lane opened before the Thursday morning rush hour. Motorists in the area should be aware that extra travel time may be necessary or they may choose an alternate route.
Motorists are reminded to watch for construction and detour signs, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
