Tennessee Valley Authority and Tennessee Department of Transportation to Hold Public Meeting on Proposed Improvements to State Route 28 (U.S. 127) in Crossville, Tennessee
The Tennessee Valley Authority and Tennessee Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting on Thursday, Jan. 20, to obtain input on TDOT’s proposed project to widen state Route 28 (U.S. 127) from state Route 68 (south of Saw Mill Road) to Hayes Street / Cleveland Street in Crossville, Tennessee.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. CDT at the Art Circle Library, Cumberland Room A, 3 East Street in Crossville.
The proposed construction includes channel and stream relocations, new culvert installation, modification of existing culverts, utility line crossings and relocations, and permanent and temporary wetland impacts.
Based on information provided by TDOT, TVA -- in consultation with the Tennessee State Historic Preservation Office -- determined that the project will have some adverse affects on historic properties. As a federal permitting agency, TVA must comply with requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. TDOT has completed a Historical/Architectural Assessment and Documentation of Effect (PDF, 5.9 mb)for the project area.
TVA will provide information on the permitting process and compliance with Section 106 of NHPA, and TDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project. Representatives will answer questions from the audience. Large maps showing the project will be on display at the meeting.
Any written comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection.
If you cannot attend the meeting but have questions or comments, please contact Anthony Summitt. All written comments on this proposed action should be sent to TVA at the address below no later than February 4, 2011.
