HENDERSON CO., NC (WSPA) – A section of Interstate 26 eastbound in Henderson County is closed for repairs after a depression was discovered under the roadway.
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, a large hole formed under the roadway near Exit 54 (U.S. 25).
Drivers are being detoured to U.S. 25 South into South Carolina then to Highway 11 eastbound to I-26.
NCDOT said a contractor is being brought in to line a pipe and then fill the hole which they say is big enough to fit a “little sports car.”
There’s no word yet on how long the interstate will remain closed.
