The Tennessee Valley Authority is building a new bridge from Blount County Loudon County and Lenoir City officials are working with the Committee of 100 to considering options for the existing bridge. Economics lecturer Ben Compton is evaluating costs and impacts of retaining the old bridge and revitalizing the adjacent park area. City officials hope his work will lay the groundwork for soliciting contributions for the project. (Faculty Lead: Ben Compton / Lenoir City Lead: Clayton Pangle)
