Meeting about I-24

I'm not sure if the meeting will address the issue of the proposed new I-24 intersection with Smyrna, but some of you might like to know the details of this meeting.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) is conducting a study to identify improvements for the 185-mile Interstate 24 corridor from Kentucky State Line to I-75 in Hamilton County. TDOT will conduct a second series of public meetings to present the identified transportation deficiencies, discuss project rankings, final reports of study and receive comments from public and key stakeholders.
The second set of meetings will be held in separate locations in Region II and Region III of the state during October; each meeting will run from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. The specific dates and locations of these meetings are listed below. During each meeting, there will be a formal presentation to provide the background and current status of the project. The public is invited to ask questions and make comments during the meeting. Information gathered during these meetings will be considered in the prioritization of potential solutions. Anyone with questions regarding the meetings should contact:

The proposed and semi-planned intersection is either viewed as a good thing or a coming social and neighborhood disaster for Smyrna. This might be the meeting where you can give your views on it directly to the state.

Good luck.
