RALEIGH — Beginning the night of Sunday, March 10, the N.C. Department of Transportation will close one
lane of Interstate 26 East at Exit 54 in Henderson County for approximately two
weeks, weather permitting, to perform work on the bridge over the Green River.
During the work, all trucks must use posted detour of U.S.
25 South to S.C. Hwy 11 back to I-26.
Cars will be allowed across the Green River Bridge but the lane will be
narrowed due to nature of the work.
The closures are necessary in order for crews to replace the
joints of the Green River Bridge, which have deteriorated over time. The $1.2
million project contract was awarded to Buckeye Construction of Canton.
