Morganton Road

Blount County and the City of Maryville have partnered with the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration to embark on a planning process to result in the improvement of approximately 2.3 miles of Morganton Road from it’s intersection with Foothills Mall Drive to the intersection of William Blount Drive.  


The Blount County Highway Department in concert with the City of Maryville and in cooperation with the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration is taking the first step toward improving Morganton Road from Foothills Mall Drive to William Blount Drive. As discussed in our Public Meeting (9-13-18), you will begin to see members of our professional design team conducting field investigations in the project area. They may be on your property. We are asking for your understanding in allowing this work to be accomplished. We do not expect this work to be destructive. Any/all sampling sites will be restored to their present condition. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
