NEWPORT—Approximately 50-60 people, most of whom own property in the path of the future bypass to connect Hwy. 321 at St. Tide Hollow Road with Hwy. 25/70 at Pepsi’s BBQ received updated information from TDOT regarding the purchase process of right-of-ways at a public meeting held Monday evening at Northwest Elementary School.

Oliver Farris, TDOT’s Transportation Manager, Right of Way Office, Region I, and other TDOT personnel provided the information to owners of 66 parcels of property involved.

According to Cocke County Partnership President Don Hurst, no businesses lie in the path of the bypass. "There are a dozen houses," he said.
