Public meetings to be held on new highway

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee residents who live along the proposed route of Interstate 69 can learn more about it this week and next.

The 65-mile section between Millington and Dyersburg could displace residents from fewer than 60 homes or disrupt people who live in more than 100 houses, depending on the final route chosen.

There's a public meeting tonight at the Lannon Center in Dyersburg and one is scheduled for tomorrow night at the Mid-South Conference Center in Millington.

Next week, there are similar meetings November 14th at Brighton High School in Brighton and November 15th at Ripley High School in Ripley.

I-69 exists now from Indianapolis north to the Canadian border above Detroit.

It will eventually connect Canada and Mexico, running along the Mississippi River Valley through West Tennessee.
