Description:

Improvements to U.S. 19/23 are being proposed to address traffic congestion, bridge conditions and pavement conditions from just north of I-240 in Asheville to just south of Stockton Road (Exit 13) near Mars Hill, in Buncombe County. The project may include adding lanes to portions of U.S. 19/23, replacing bridges, and repaving sections of the highway. The existing roadway is a 4-lane, median-divided freeway along the entire route.
