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.
