This June 26, 2008 document is the government's draft supplemental final environmental impact statement on the proposed relocation of U.S. 74 in Graham County. The proposed road, known as "Corridor K," would be built from U.S. 129 in Robbinsville to N.C. 28 in Stecoah. The road would cut through a portion of the Nantahala National Forest, according to the document.
The project is part of a road network planned by the Appalachian Regional Commission in the 1960s to improve the economies of the Appalachian states.
