On Wednesday, the Tennessee Department of Transportation along with Governor Bill Lee released TDOT’s annual 3-year transportation program. About $2.6 billion in infrastructure investments are planned for 68 individual projects in 45 counties across the state. One of those projects will affect residents in Cocke County who travel US 411 known as Newport Highway from Newport to Sevierville. Construction should begin in 2022 to continue the construction of the new 4 lane expansion of US 411 from near the Bush Beans plant in Chestnut Hill to Sims Road in Sevier County. That is Good News!
