Jackson’s Curve ramp closing overnight for concrete repair
ASHEVILLE – N.C. Department of Transportation crews will repair a broken concrete slab on Interstate 26 East/I-240 West in Jackson’s Curve on Monday night requiring a closure of the ramp.
Traffic heading on I-26 East/I-240 West will be rerouted on the Bowen Bridge starting at 7 p.m. tonight. Drivers will be separated into one lane for I-26/I-240 traffic — the route to Cliff Lane and Resort Drive — with another lane for through traffic on Patton Avenue. Transportation officials anticipate reopening the ramp in time for the Tuesday morning commute.
Repairs will address deterioration in a section of the concrete pavement and will help prevent additional problems associated at this location. Drivers are encouraged to plan extra time into their evening commute, follow the posted detour signs and watch for employees in the work zone.
