Project News

Spring 2014 Public Meeting

Following the March 2011 Public Hearing, TDOT decided to revise the proposed design of the SR 28/US 127 Project to allow for the addition of a third typical section.  The proposed design also expands the right-of-way limits in some locations of the project from 104 feet to 300 feet.  Due to these changes, TDOT is reviewing the proposed conceptual design in and around South Fentress Community Park and Clarkrange Baptist Church in hopes to minimize impacts to the park and the church.
TDOT has tentatively scheduled a public meeting for Spring 2014.

Availability of the Approved Environmental Assessment

TDOT announced the availability of the approved Environmental Assessment for the SR 28/US 127 Improvements Project in Spring 2011.  The Environmental Assessment identified proposed alternatives to develop a new route that would improve access on SR 28/US 127 and provide a direct link between Jamestown and I-40 in Crossville.  The Environmental Assessment was approved by the Federal Highway Administration on December 22, 2010.
