Proposed Kirby ParkwayShelby County

The following is a reflection of various aspects of the development phases as they have occurred or will occur on the Kirby Parkway project.

NOTE: Following the comment period for the September 2013 Public Hearing, TDOT was developing a Record of Decision (ROD) for this project. In 2015, before that ROD could be completed and approved, a NEPA reevaluation was initiated (as required by the Federal Highway Administration) due to the passage of time since the January 2012 approval of the SFEIS. In early 2017, during the development of the reevaluation, the Proposed Kirby Parkway project was temporarily put on hold, pending the completion of the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization's update to its Transportation Demand Model (TDM), which was completed in the summer of 2018. TDOT uses TDM data in studies relevant to projects, including traffic analyses necessary to conduct the reevaluation of the SFEIS for Kirby Parkway.
