What: Pellissippi Parkway Extension - EIS alignment shifts
When: Thursday, May 30, 2013 - 5:00pm
Where: Rio Revolution Church, 3425 E. Lamar ALexander Parkway, Maryville, TN

Parsons Brinckerhoff mailed notices announcing TDOT will host a Community Briefing 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.)


Note, Parsons Brinckerhoff required two mailings at 46 cents per piece for this announcement due to a necessary correction. The meeting is to be held Thursday, May 30, 2013, not Tuesday, May 30, 2013.

Please continue to help Citizens Against Pellissippi Parkway Extension(CAPPE) keep fighting to protect the rural character of Blount County, encourage responsible development, and discourage wasteful and greedy spending of our tax dollars!
