Corridor K and I3 public meetings

12 posts in this topic

There will be 3 upcoming meetings in Tennessee & North Carolina 1st the Ocooe White Water Center TN 2nd Sylva North Carolina last Cleveland TN

If you oppose this new proposed interstate ripping through all of those beautiful mountains and National Forest I

suggest attending one of the three public meetings and voicing your opinions and feelings. Most people are opposed to

the I3 and Corridor K proposal in Western North Carolina and South Eastern Tennessee so lets get out and let the local

politicians hear our voice. Click on the links below to view the schedule of meetings and overall route of this proposed

interstate roadway.

You know I never thought of it but if I-3 gets built they could build a connecting tollway somewhere north of Lavonia Ga. from it to I-75 somewhere well to the north of Atlanta. It would make more sense than current proposals for the Northern Arc.

Okay, I agree that the proposed highway sucks for the mountains and the environment. Is there anyway I could just get a connecting interstate to Charleston and/or Savannah?

I wouldn't mind seeing a Savannah/Augusta/Greenville route, or at the very least, Savannah to Augusta, then terminating at I-85 in North GA near the border...

I'm not sure of the need for this Interstate. I-16 from Savannah to Macon does not have heavy traffic.

If it is needed why not connect to I-75 north of Chattanooga. Via one of the following routes:

Savannah to Augusta

Augusta to Cornelia/Baldwin or Toccoa

Toccoa/Cornelia/Baldwin to Blairsville

Blairsville to Cleveland, TN

or

Savannah to Augusta

Augusta to Athens

Athens to just north of Gainsville/Cornelia/Baldwin

north Gainsville/Cornelia/Baldwin to Cleveland, TN

With these routes you still are cutting through the Southern Appalachian Mtns, which stinks, but it keeps the interstate out of the view of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

I have no doubt in that point.

Are there any readers that travel regulary from Savanah area to eastern TN, north GA and/or west NC?

If so what is the current route you use?

My guess is that I-95 to I-26 is used frequently, at least for Western NC... That's also a fairly common route for people coming in from the Great lakes states.

My interest in seeing an I-3 is mostly self-serving. I don't think it would see any more use than I-16 between Macon and Savannah. But it would be extremely convenient for me (and anyone who travels frequently in and out of Augusta).

I like Nova's second idea best - Savannah, Augusta, Athens, Gainesville, Chatlanta. I would prefer it to start off I-16 near Statesboro though... or at least have two legs like the Savannah River Parkway does... but thats for my personal benefit.

I like the idea. Anything to get from upstate South Carolina to Chattanooga without the Atlanta hassels will work. It may remove my vision of extending I-24 southeastward to Gainesville and Athens.
