Campbell Station Road extension a ‘go,’ TDOT said

Mayor Eddy Ford announced that the last environmental hurdle standing before the onset of construction for the Campbell Station Road extension had been cleared at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Farragut Municipal Planning Commission Oct. 7.

Ford deferred to town engineer Darryl Smith who said, “I’ve received a couple of e-mails from Jennifer Stone of TDOT. It is my understanding that all the environmental hurdles are cleared on the Campbell Station Road extension project and we expect to see some mobilization in the next couple of weeks. It is my understanding that (TDOT) was to issue the work order early this week. I haven’t heard that that has been done. … We do expect to see some sort of movement out there after all these years.”

The Commission viewed a presentation by Wilbur Smith and Associates on the I-40/Campbell Station Road interchange at its regularly scheduled meeting Oct. 7.

The presentation was a redux of a program presented to the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen at an earlier date as an addendum to a presentation by the company centered on the widening of Campbell Station Road from Kingston Pike to Grigsby Chapel Road.

Representatives of Wilbur Smith & Associates again recommended the town consider recommending to TDOT the Single Point Urban Intersection as the most practical solution to the escalating traffic counts anticipated by 2008.

Mayor Eddy Ford said that the next step would be for the town to approach TDOT with its recommendations and have them sign on to the project.
