One Night Operations to Slow I-26 Traffic

ASHEVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation crews will assist a utility company with a late-night operation on Interstate 26 on Monday night and Tuesday morning. 

Drivers are encouraged to use Hendersonville Road as the main alternate route between 9 p.m. on Monday and 6 a.m. on Tuesday while utility crews pull lines across all lanes of the interstate at several locations.

NCDOT will initiate three slow-rolling traffic control measures on Monday night. 

  • Starting about 9 p.m., drivers should anticipate a 20-minute delay between Brevard Road and U.S. 25 Business.
  • Starting about 1 a.m, drivers should anticipate a two-hour delay between Brevard Road and U.S. 25 Business. 
  • A third control measure may be needed after traffic is released from the two-hour maneuver. 

All operations will also impact westbound ramps from U.S. 25 Business, the westbound rest area, Airport Road, and eastbound ramps of Brevard Road and Long Shoals Road.​

Westbound traffic should use Hendersonville Road and I-40 West to return to I-26, and eastbound traffic should use I-40 to Hendersonville Road south to the interchange at U.S. 25 Business (Exit 44).
