A contractor for the N.C. Department of Transportation will begin a two-night process of converting Merrimon Avenue (U.S. 25) from Midland Road to W. T. Weaver Boulevard into a three-lane configuration the evening of Oct. 10.

NCDOT and our partners at the City of Asheville have developed a plan to complete the conversion with as little disruption to daily and rush-hour traffic as possible,” said Nathan Moneyham, NCDOT Division 13 Construction Engineer. “In less than 72 hours, this 1.5 mile section of Merrimon Avenue will convert from its existing pattern into the three-lane pattern.”
