NCDOT I-26 Rest Area
This multiple-building rest area design is a portion of the more extensive renovation of I-26 from four lanes to eight lanes between Brevard Road in Asheville and U.S. 25 Business in Fletcher and from four lanes to six lanes from U.S. 25 Business to U.S. 64 in Hendersonville.
Demolition of the existing buildings was replaced with newly designed contemporary structures to integrate the local cultural character of the mountains of North Carolina. They feature more natural light, LED lighting, low-flow water utilities, modern vending machines, a new floor plan, and a memorial to NCDOT employees killed on duty.
Parking was expanded to 100 passenger vehicle spaces and more than 30 truck spaces at each rest area. This modern design is the first of its kind for an NCDOT rest area.
