Proposed Hwy. 127 S. project

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has released this rendering of its Hwy. 127 S. project in Cumberland County. The project, described as a “fresh approach,” will focus on safety and pedestrian access, while preserving the triangle greenspace at the Homestead Tower. The project would begin about half a mile from the intersection with Hwy. 68 and extend .4 miles north to just south of Byrd Creek on Hwy. 127. On Hwy. 68, the project would extend to the area of Burton Rd. The intersection of Hwy. 127 and Hwy. 68 is designed with a proposed traffic signal. The project also expands parking for the Tower Museum and sidewalks.
