The N.C. Department of Transportation is in the preliminary planning and design stage for functional and safety improvements along a nearly 3.8-mile stretch of U.S. 25/U.S. 70 in Madison County from approximately 300 feet south of Skyway Drive to Brush Creek Road.
A two-lane highway, U.S. 25/U.S. 70 is a key travel route through Madison County, connecting several towns and providing access to I-26 in Weaverville. Three schools are located along the project corridor, including Madison Middle and Madison High schools.
This project is listed as Project r-5837 in the N.C. Department of Transportation's State Transportation Improvement Program and is funded for $34.7 million.
