The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will host a Design public meeting on July 20, 2017 to gather public input on the Monroe County SR-322 project.

The proposed project along SR-322 from Sheppard Road (log mile 13.32) to SR-72 (log mile 15.58) consists of improvements including widening of SR-322 on a new shifted alignment which will follow the existing roadway from Sheppard Road to Brakebill Road. From Brakebill Road to SR-72 the proposed roadway will depart from the existing roadway and intersect SR-72 at Excellence Way.  The new roadway will include two (2) - twelve (12) foot travel lanes, one in each direction with ten (10) foot shoulders.  A new 4 way intersection will be constructed at the present SR-72/Excellence Way intersection with new turn lanes and signal. 

The meeting will be held from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. at the following location:
Vonore Elementary School Gymnasium
