Monday, June 24, 2013

Plans are underway to widen Apison Pike from Ooltewah-Ringgold Road past the city of Collegedale and on to East Brainerd Road.

TDOT will hold a design public meeting on the project at Collegedale City Hall on Thursday from 5-7 p.

m.  

The project proposes to widen Apison Pike to five 12-foot travel lanes and two four-foot shoulders/bike lanes with curb, gutter and sidewalks in that four-mile section between Ooltewah-Ringgold Road and the Collegedale Airport.  

It is planned for Apison Pike to change to three 12-foot travel lanes and two four-foot shoulder/bike lanes with curb, gutter and sidewalk between the Collegedale Airport and East Brainerd Road, where the proposed improvements will end.

 

At the meeting there will be a presentation followed by a question and answer session. The public is invited to ask questions and make comments during the meeting.  Representatives of TDOT will be present to answer questions on any aspect of the project.

 

A court reporter will be available to receive oral statements to be included in the project transcript.  In addition, comment sheets will be available for those who prefer to make written statements.  Written statements and other exhibits to be included in the project transcript may be submitted within 21 days after the meeting date to the following address:
