Interstate 26 East Closures Scheduled This Week

ASHEVILLE — One section of Interstate 26 East will close for a few nights with traffic diverting to roads with longer green lights, starting tonight.

I-26 East will close from exits 40-44 tonight, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning. Start times may be delayed due to high traffic volume.

Drivers will be detoured from I-26 at exit 40 (N.C. 280) heading east to U.S. 25 (Hendersonville Road) to access I-26 at exit 44.

The Integrated Corridor Management System will hold green lights longer to accommodate the additional traffic on the detour routes.

​Transportation officials remind drivers to slow down, obey all posted signs and remain alert while driving in work zones.
