As long as it still has a pulse, the James White Parkway extension isn’t dead.  Not yet.  But as of today, it appears to be one step closer.

Supporters of the controversial road attempted to pass a motion before the Transportation Planning Organization’s technical committee this morning that would have moved the project back onto the TPO’s long-range plan.  In late August, the TPO voted to abandon the decades-old project.  This morning’s motion by Sevier County Communications Coordinator Perrin Anderson represented an attempt to reverse that decision.
