  • Appalachian RD: NCDOT construction near Harmon Den may affect Forest access

    NCDOT is replacing a bridge on I-40 at the Harmon Den exit (Exit 7), that will temporarily close Harmon Den Road into 2022.

    Starting as soon as Nov. 9, all traffic will be funneled into a one-lane pattern prior to the bridge and use the ramps as a detour around the bridge. Traffic will remain in this pattern into May while crews remove and replace the deteriorating structure.

    Road closures and detours may affect Forest access in that area.

    This construction will also create a wildlife crossing underneath the bridge to allow wildlife to safely move without having to cross the interstate.
