To Do - Tennessee

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is an attempt to better coordinate the efforts of editors in the Tennessee region. Please edit this page to keep it up-to-date!

Also, the current hierarchy is just so we have something to work with. If there is a better way to organize this page, please discuss it!

Currently, the format is split be the divisions: East, Middle, and West Tennessee. Underneath each should be the status pertaining to the various Interstates, and US Highways that travel throughout that region. Also, counties within that region will be displayed in order to remain up-to-date on the status of the state routes and local streets that travel through these counties.

Most text below ought to be updated.


I am a newer editor that has been somewhat active around Southeast Tennessee. As such, I'm still relatively inexperienced. I welcome more experienced editors to fix this page up!

Definitions

Sections: Logical or Physical splits in the road way.

For physical separations, I-75 merges onto I-40 southwest of Knoxville, and leaves I-40 in Knoxville. Since the mile markers, signs, and exit numbers follow's I-40, then the stretch should be consider I-40, and the I-75 section will not be listed, in order to remove duplicates. Similarly, when US Highways and Interstates merge onto each other, we should follow that system (the primary road will to avoid unnecessary duplications. Similarly, Interstates and US Highways will override counties for the sake of simplicity. If an editor needs to leave a note about a US Highway travelling through Knox County, it will be under the US Highway, not the county.

For logical separations, I-40 can be broken down to three major stretches in East Tennessee: Crossville to I-75, I-75 to I-81, and I-81 to North Carolina. There is no physical separation of the highway, but breaks the highway into manageable areas.

This also allows roads to be logically separated indefinitely as we gain more editors, as smaller sections are always easier to maintain

For this system, use West to East, and South to North to designate the section. Attempt to use points of termination, such as an Interstate or state. If not available, use city names to designate the end of a section.

Editors: Editors and Area Managers working on this section of the road.

Progress: The quality of the road or the progress on updating the road. (Excellent, Good, Bad, Horrible, Unknown).

Construction: Add any construction here. Instead of having all details, post construction notes elsewhere and link (working on this).

Comments: Any helpful comments. Will also be linked to allow overflow.

Mapping Guidelines

  • (Proposed: R4CLucky14): In the event of divided highways, such as parts of SR-30 and US-411 through the more rural areas, crossovers should be put in as streets with all turns enabled if the intersection is uncontrolled (eg. No stoplights). The TN Driver's guide allows u-turns at these locations, provided a few guidelines are met (I ommitted a few), below (if your curious):
    • At any intersection where a traffic light or police officer is controlling the traffic flow.
    • At any rural or urban location where you cannot see traffic coming from both directions for at least 500 feet in each direction.
    • At any location where U-turns are prohibited by official signs or markings.
    • Between intersections in a city. The safest thing to do is drive around the block.
  • (Proposed: R4CLucky14): State Routes (both Primary and Secondary) should follow a State Highway ## naming scheme to get a shield and better label the road according to locals.

Construction

Title Begins Ends Information
US-64 Rehabilitation: STARTED 05/2012 POLK COUNTY, U.S. 64 (SR-40) rehabilitation of bridge over Brush Creek (LM 23.04): Traffic signals have been installed at each end of the bridge to regulate the flow of traffic through the area. The contractor has moved traffic to the newly paved side of the bridge. A one 11’-lane traffic operation is currently in effect. This one-lane traffic operation will remain in place while the repairs to the bridge are being completed. Delays are possible and wide loads cannot pass across the Brush Creek Bridge. Estimated project completion date is May 2012.
US-129 Relocation: TBA TBA US-129 will be relocated from N Hall Rd to after US-140. The new road will result in a limited-access highway stretching over 3 miles.
US-411 Widening: Started 11/2012 POLK COUNTY, U.S. 411 (SR-33) grading, drainage, construction of three concrete Bulb-Tee beam bridges, and paving beginning at the Benton City Limits and extending to SR-30: (Recovery Act Project) The contractor is currently relocating utilities, grading, and installing structures. The contractor is using a flagging operation to navigate construction equipment through the project. Estimated project completion date is November 2012.
SR-60 Widening: Started 06/2012 BRADLEY COUNTY, SR-60 (Dalton Pike) road widening from near Gilliland Road to U.S. 64 (SR-311): The heavily traveled intersection of Dalton Pike and McGrady Drive/Treasury Drive is currently undergoing major reconstruction for the next several weeks. During this time period, the contractor will begin the SR60 at McGrady Drive excavation work. The travel lanes will be reduced to two lanes and protected with barrier rails as the contractor works on cutting down the grade. All traffic control and detour signs necessary for this work are ready and in place. Although the intersection will remain open to some traffic during construction, major delays are expected. Temporary lane closures and lane shifts will be implemented as the intersection is lowered to the proposed grade. Trucks will be required to use designated truck routes as McGrady Drive will be closed to truck traffic. Detour signs and message boards will be provided to assist motorists. Estimated project completion date is June 2012.
SR-74 Rehabilitation: Started 10/2013 BRADLEY and POLK COUNTIES, SR-74 (GA225/Spring Place Road) between the Tennessee/Georgia State Line and SR-313 (Ladd Springs Road) construction of two concrete box bridges over the Conasauga River Overflow (LM 0.01) and the Conasauga River (LM 0.14) including grading, drainage and paving: SR- 74 (GA225/Spring Place Road) is closed to traffic for the duration of the project to replace two bridges between the GA/TN state line and MM 0.45. There will be a detour posted in GA and TN, and major delays are expected. Detour signs and message boards will be provided to assist motorists. Local traffic will be permitted, at all times, to access businesses and residential property within road closure area. However traffic will not be permitted to enter the active work area that is adjacent to the Conasauga River bridges. Every effort will be made to minimize the inconvenience to motorists, businesses, residences, and property owners. TDOT and consultant staff will be available throughout the project to address any questions or concerns. Estimated project completion date is October 2013.
SR-30 Widening: Started 05/2012 MCMINN COUNTY, SR-30 widening project, including grading, drainage, paving, construction of a concrete box beam bridge and a retaining wall, including signal installation, from Athens City Limits to east of County Road 609: Traffic will be detoured to the eastbound lanes of the new alignment from the beginning of the project to Allen Circle. Speed limit reduction signs from 45 MPH to 35 MPH continue to be posted throughout the detour from County Road 552 to the end of the project. There will be temporary lane closures during blasting and logging operations. Flaggers will assist with traffic control as needed. Estimated project completion is May 2012.
SR-30 Widening: Started 11/2014 MCMINN COUNTY, SR-30 widening project, including grading, drainage, paving, construction of a concrete box beam bridge and retaining wall from County Road 609 to the 4-lane section in Etowah: The contractor has installed the construction signs and plans to start clearing the right-of-way on both sides of the highway. As most of the work will be on the shoulder, traffic will not be affected at this time. Flaggers will assist with traffic control as needed. Estimated project completion is November 2014.
