A Community Briefing will be held regarding a change in the route for the Pellissippi Parkway Extension, Alternative A. An environmentally sensitive area, that apparently must be avoided, was found during further studies of the area. The route will be changed near the Kensington Place mobile home community, either 150 feet west into the community or 300 feet east away from the community.

The meeting will be held:

Thursday, May 30, 2013
5 - 7 PM
Rio Revolution Church
3425 E. Lamar ALexander Parkway,
Maryville, TN 37804
(Approx. 10 miles from the airport, 4 miles past Blount Memorial Hospital, out TN-73 E/US-321 N/E Lamar Alexander Pkwy towards Townsend, on the left. If you get to the road going to Heritage High School you have gone too far.)

UPDATE: Pellissippi Parkway Extension (SR 162) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)

The comment period for the proposed avoidance shifts has been extended to Saturday, June 15, 2013. Below is a link to the comment form including the June 15th date. Please feel free to share this comment form with others.
