The Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce has made a commitment to facilitate the critical completion of the I-26 Connector Project.

Beginning in the 1980’s with the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), the I-26 Connector remains uncompleted and now has one of the highest accident rates in North Carolina, three decades later. To ensure the safety and economic success of our region, we’re encouraging our community to let NCDOT know that Western North Carolina wants to “Get Moving on I-26.”

According to NCDOT, the design phase is nearly complete, and the public has had an opportunity to comment and attend public hearings to review and provide input on designs. Once final details are put forward, we’ll make sure to keep you up-to-date.
