On Monday, January 29th, county units were advised of a pursuit entering into Whte County from Cumberland County. The driver, 39 year old Reuben Scarlett, was traveling down Crossville Highway in an excess of 110mph.

127 N 4-LANE PROJECT IN CUMB. CO. NOW DOWN TO TWO LANES
Peg Broadcasting News Friday February 2, 2018

After living in limbo for 20 years, some residents along 127 North in Cumberland County were shocked to find out that the 4-lane project is now a 2-lane project. That was the word from the Tennessee Department of Transportation at Thursday night's meeting. TDOT said that the plan now is to construct a new 2-lane highway with 12-foot shoulders next to the existing roadway from near Potato Farm Road to near Hollow Lane and from near Hollow Lane to near Lowe Road. When property owners asked why they were not getting the safer 4-lane road that officials had promised back in the 1990's, TDOT cited budgetary constraints and lack of enough traffic to warrant the additional two lanes. Once the new road is built, the old road will be dug up. TDOT did say that the current designs will allow for a divided 4-lane highway sometime in the future. But since it has already been over two decades, many want to know whose future the Department is talking about. The Department is still buying property for the Cumberland County projects. TDOT said the plan is to bid at least one of the 127 North projects in February 2021 with the goal of starting construction in Spring 2021. For now, the initial plan to 4-lane 127 North from I-40 to Potato Farm Road is still on the table. That phase of the project is presently under right-of-way acquisition, and it is uncertain when heavy equipment will begin to break ground. The estimated cost to 4-lane just 127 North from the Interstate to Potato Farm Road is $29.2 million. TDOT will hold a public meeting pertaining to the 127 North projects that are in Fentress County on February 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. at South Fentress Elementary.
