The Tennessee Department of
Transportation has scheduled a public hearing Dec. 16 to discuss a proposed
interchange on Interstate 40 in the east central part of the state.
According to a department news
release, the proposed project would provide a new interchange on I-40 at
Buttermilk Road, mile marker 360, near the Roane Regional Business and

Highway 95 interchange, Exit 364.
Plans call for the existing
eastbound truck rest area to be eliminated.
The meeting will be from 5:30 to

City. TDOT representatives will be attending and the public can ask questions
