New State Hwy Under Construction in Jasper TN
« on: January 19, 2017, 12:59:24 AM »

Article says it's purpose is to take traffic off the Betsy Pack Dr portion of US 41 in Jasper. Article also mentions they really want to take truck traffic off Betsy Pack Dr.

I'm wondering if they will give it a state highway number, and maybe make it TRUCK US 41, or re-route US 41 onto it.

Looks like a realignment of SR 150 (US 41): http://www.tn.gov/assets/entities/tdot/attachments/Const_August2015_Notice.pdf
"The grading, drainage, paving, construction of concrete box culverts and a slab bridge on U.S. 41 (S.R. 150) from existing S.R. 150 to S.R. 28 north of Jasper."
