Press release from N.C. Department of Transportation:
ASHEVILLE – Contract crews plan to conduct overnight road work that will require lane closures this week along a section of Future I-26/U.S. 19/U.S. 23.
One of two lanes will be closed on the westbound side of the highway between mile markers 24 and 26, which includes the UNC-Asheville exit, between 7 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday. This will enable the crews to safely mill and repave the asphalt approaches to the bridges over Broadway Street and Lookout Road.
Once the westbound side is complete, the contractor plans to repeat the process on the eastbound side the following night.
Drivers should anticipate the lane reduction at the scheduled times and be mindful of the crews working close to the travel lanes in this area.
