In response to the Daily Times report on our meeting with Alcoa city officials, I sent a letter to the editor to clarify a few things and add a little more information about the proposed bypass.

  • TDOT meeting participants have favored fixing the exisiting highway and not building a new bypass.
  • Traffic counts have never been 75,000, currently around 52,000.
  • Noise abatement is an issue.
  • What happened at what meeting to change the project from a fix to a new road?


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.
