Corridor K environmental impact statement

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.

    This proposed road way will do nothing but ruin the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The Appalachian Regional Commission proposed this so called economic improvement in the 60′s and in today’s economic times it is nothing but old school thinking. There are plenty of ways to bring economic prosperity to an area with out spending billions of dollars to rip up our mountains and lay asphalt at the tax payer’s expense. It’s time to stand up to these politicians who are pushing this project and simply say NO!
