County asks state to fund Highway 70 project
Project would reach from Smithville to Liberty
TN 70 W
The county commission voted last week to ask state lawmakers to appropriate funding for the long-awaited widening of Highway 70 from Smithville to Highway 96 at Liberty. Commissioners agreed to adopt a resolution asking the state legislature to appropriate funds for the highway and for TDOT to let bids in its next round of contracts. But TDOT's plans for extension of the project from Highway 96 to just west of the Wilson County line has apparently been put on hold due to lack of funding.
