NOTE: The 2007 APR evaluated potential improvements to SR 322 from west of Sunnyside Road to SR 72, approximately 8.5 miles, in Monroe County. Following ongoing funding concerns, TDOT Commissioner John Schroer authorized a reinvestigation of the proposed project in June 2014. The Expedited Project Delivery (EPD) report was approved in January 2015, which allowed the project to move forward.
