James White Parkway Extension

Meade's Quarry


James White Parkway Extension

Newspaper  headlines on Sunday stating that TDOT's announcement to go forward with this extension is imminent without saying with route they will use, has a lot of people (including me) have expressed their concerns about the impact of the project. A number of of people support the no build option and at this point, so do I.  Link to Knoxville News Sentinel August 18th Article
