Project Data Summary Sheet: Interstate 69-Section 9

From Hernando, Mississippi to Millington, Tennessee  Desoto and Marshall Counties in Mississippi Shelby and Fayette Counties in Tennessee

TDOT is continuing its public involvement process for the Shelby County I-69/I-269 project, and we are alerting the public to activities that are ongoing in the project area.

In order to insure that we have the most accurate, complete, and current information possible, TDOT survey crews, or employees of our consultant representative will begin gathering data to supplement existing aerial photographs of the area. This will involve ground surveys, which will investigate property lines, underground utilities, detailed stream information, environmental surveys, and more.

These ground surveys have begun, and will continue for twelve (12) to eighteen (18) months.

The survey crews may need to gain access to privately owned property, in order to gather the necessary information, and we will appreciate cooperation in that effort. The surveyors will attempt to contact property owners personally prior to entering property. If there are specific times during the work week that should be avoided, property owners are asked to share that information at this time. Surveys will not be required on all properties.

For specific questions, call the TDOT Regional Survey Supervisor, Howard G. Blankenship, Jr. at (731) 935-0137. Additional TDOT contact is Community Relations Officer Jim Waters at (615) 532-3135. We would like to thank property owners in advance for their cooperation.
