According to The Daily Times,

“First of all we're firmly behind the Alcoa Parkway extension process. That's been something we've had multiple public hearings on. There's been involvement from the general public, governments (cities of Alcoa and Maryville, Blount County, City of Knoxville) Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority, Motor Mile merchants and the Blount Chamber of Commerce Transportation Committee,” he [Alcoa Assistant City Manager Bill Hammon] said.

I've been following the Alcoa Parkway bypass process and my records show the last public meeting was held by TDOT in 2004.

Maybe I missed some announcement in the paper, I don't know. I would like to know more about when and where these multiple public hearings were held. In addition, I'd like to know how the public was notified of these meetings.

About this site

The purpose of this site is to provide an online clearinghouse for information about the proposed Alcoa Parkway bypass and to promote public awareness and public participation in the process. We believe that the original proposal to improve the existing Alcoa Highway corridor needs a second look as a viable alternative for correcting safety and capacity problems, and that the public should have more input in selecting the preferred build alternative.
