I-26: Remixed


Charles Elmer of Wu Media created this condensed version of the Jan. 6, 2009 County Commission meeting during which the I-26 Connector alternatives were debated and public comment was heard.


This Monday, March 9th, at 5:30pm there will be a tour and informational forum to update the public on where we are in the process.  You can check out the details of that forum here.  Please come out to support Burton St. neighborhood and to let the decision makers know that Asheville wants a connector that uses less land, takes fewer homes, takes fewer businesses, links west Asheville to downtown, separates local from interstate traffic, and creates a 22 acre downtown development district that complies with Asheville’s 2025 Plan.


  1. Doug Gibson says:

    So they’re telling us to contact Bev Perdue? Why? What are we supposed to say?

  2. Gordon Smith says:

    Personally? I’m waiting until the March 9th forum before I act.

  3. Bryan Freeborn says:

    At the end of the day if Asheville citizens overwhelmingly support one alt over the rest to Purdue directly, that is what we will get. At this point if we want the project to move forward and in a way that we like that is the avenue to play. You better believe that the Chamber is talking with her.

    does anyone have the link to just the complete computer simulations of the routes? thanks.

  5. Gordon Smith says:

    Asheville Design Center has them, Joshua
