Redesign Chapman Hwy

This highway has claimed countless lives. A redesign is long over due. The traffic has out grown the road way. Businesses continue to go up, in return, traffic will also. There is only a double yellow line separating the four lane highway. There is no time to react should someone cross that line. A section in the city has a left hand turn lane separating the lanes, and you don't see nearly the same number in fatalities as the rest
of this highway. It is time to see a change, I-40 was fixed, there is no reason why Chapman Hwy can't be! How many more precious lives have to be taken before it is addressed. Enough is....enough!!

      Having served as a member of the Knoxville Volunteer Rescue Squad from 1998-2001, I can personally attest to the dangers posed by Chapman Highway which was the source of numerous wrecks and fatalities during my time with KVRS.

      Chapman Highway has always been scary with no separation between the lanes

      I travel this road everyday. I can see the highway from my back porch. That is not a day goes by that I do not hear sirens going up and down chapman Hwy. i have had several friends lose their life on this highway and enough is enough.

      There is no median or turn lanes in several areas between Knoxville and Sevierville. People must use the "fast" lane as a turning lane causing numerous accidents when they come to a full stop and vehicles approaching behind them can't see the traffic coming to a complete stop.
