Hendersonville Lightning: Road updates: I-26, Kanuga Road, White Street, U.S. 64 roundabouts, NC 191

From the Lightning:

[Lonnie Watkins, the NCDOT engineer for Henderson, Polk and Transylvania counties,] also reported that the Kanuga Road widening has been pushed off the current State Transportation Improvement Plan. The project now has a construction date of 2040. “It’s so far out they just put a date out in the future,” Watkins said. . .

Watkins also reported on the status of other projects, many of which have been delayed because of the DOT’s cash shortage a year ago. Projects in the pipeline include:. . .

  • North Highland Lake Road widening: Bids exceeded the projection by $3½ million, forcing the NCDOT to reject them all. The project is being rebid out of Raleigh. Contract let date is May 21.
  • Green River bridge on I-26: Improvements are scheduled to start Aug. 15.
  • Major drainage repair on the Saluda grade: Contract scheduled to be let June 15.
  • Kanuga Lake Road. Culvert replacement is under way. Road is scheduled to open at the end of this week. . .
