Hearing planned for McCoy Bridge project

Written by 

The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, April 25, regarding alternatives for replacing the McCoy Bridge on Rose Creek Road over the Little Tennessee River in Macon County.

NCDOT has proposed replacing the existing bridge with a new bridge located downstream from the current location. The proposal will require additional right of way. The public hearing is the final opportunity for the public to ask questions and state comments before an alternative for replacing the bridge is chosen.

The public hearing will take place at the Cowee Elementary School gymnasium in Franklin. It will be conducted as a question and answer session with a moderator and panel of NCDOT and Federal Highway Administration representatives. Maps displaying the bridge replacement alternatives will be available prior to the public hearing from 5 to 6 p.m.

For additional information, contact Christy Huff, Project Development and Environmental Analysis, Bridge Unit, at 919.707.6173 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
