Existing Alignment Planning Study of Alcoa Highway (US 129/ SR 115) and Road Corridor Development Plan
The City of Alcoa, in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), is developing a transportation and land use corridor study for State Route 115 (SR-115) / US Highway 129 (US-129) / existing alignment of Alcoa Highway, from the future Alcoa Highway intersection at McGhee Tyson Airport and Pellissippi Parkway. The goal of this study is to prepare a corridor development plan for an urban corridor and develop recommendations that create a more urban and multimodal environment for all users, while minimizing future long-term maintenance once the new alignment of Alcoa Highway is implemented (estimated completion in 2029).
The study corridor will be reviewed and evaluated for opportunities to improve safety, vehicular capacity, and multimodal opportunities. For analysis purposes, the study corridor has been divided into the following tasks:
- Existing and Future Conditions Analysis
- Needs and Deficiencies of the Corridor
- Stakeholder and Public Involvement
- Design Guidelines and Potential Solutions
As part of the study, the City of Alcoa is holding a virtual public workshop on Thursday, February 24, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm eastern standard time. The purpose of this meeting is to bring awareness and solicit public input on the study area’s existing conditions, areas of concern, and areas of opportunity. The meeting will start promptly with introductions, a presentation, and then followed by a question-and-answer session. This meeting will be held via MICROSOFT TEAMS. It is not required to download this software to participate. Please be sure to join early to test your audio and functionality. Participants will automatically be muted upon entry, and a question-and-answer box will be available to ask questions throughout the meeting.
