3/16/15 - Beginning March 16th through March 20th, the DOT says rolling road blocks and traffic stoppage will occur on I-40 in Haywood County between the Tennesee line and Fines Creek Road. This will happen between 30 minutes after sunrise and 10 am, weather permitting. Traffic will be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time in each direction during these hours, in order to safely remove timber from the slope. Motorists are encouraged to adjust travel plans and avoid this area if possible during this time frame.
3/03/15- The Westbound entrance ramp will be closed on I-40 at Exit 7 (Harmon Den Rd.) starting March 3rd 2015 at 8am and remain closed until October 31st 2015. This is a slope stabilization project. There is a speed limit reduction to 45 mph for all traffic between MM-6 and MM-9. Motorists can expect night time lane closures and shoulder closures.
11/11/14- The Craven Street improvement project is underway in West Asheville. The storm water culvert section of the project underway since mid-July, is complete and crews will shift to the realignment of Craven Street, Emma Road and Hazel Mill Road. Work along this section is anticipated to take through the spring of 2015. Watch for heavy construction equipment in the area.
