TDOT determined there is a "Finding of No Significant Impact" for the Alcoa Bypass project. Truly amazing.

We can still work with the various stakeholders to try and change this project to be a better fit for the community. For example, fix the existing Alcoa Highway, integrate with other parallel roads (that also need fixes), e.g. Maryville Pike and Sevierville Road.

Then, hopefully, it will be hard to get funding for this project until we can get it changed.

We are just beginning the review process of this 222 page report. The report, dated 8/7/2011, can also be found on TDOT's Relocated Alcoa Highway web page. Please, take a look and give us your input.


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.
