I-40 to Asheville, NC Open
Good news for spring travelers! I-40 through the Great Smoky Mountains is now open. Currently, two east-bound lanes and one west-bound lane are open. Getting to Asheville is now easier than ever for those traveling from the west and northwest.
Work will continue through the summer to stabilize specific areas of the mountain and to perform some additional work on the rockslide. About three miles of the westbound lane closest to the mountain will be closed to allow crews to complete work which will include the installation of rock bolts and anchor mesh.
