TDOT Makes Repairs Along Pipeline Route
By Walter F. Roche Jr.
Tennessee Department of Transportation maintenance crews have been doing repair work this week along the route of the US Nitrogen pipeline installation on Fish Hatchery Road in Greene County.
Mark Nagi, a TDOT spokesman said today that the maintenance crews completed "shoulder repair work at the waterline."
Photos of the state crews working at the scene were posted earlier this week on the Save The Nolichucky website.
Nagi said the repair work was undertaken when "it appeared that the shoulder stone that was placed after completion of the water line construction was eroded by water runoff due to multiple rain events."
He said that since the contractor already had been released from further liability, the cost of the repairs was covered under routine maintenance funds maintained by TDOT.
