At the beginning of December, I had the opportunity to visit a Trousdale County prehistoric archaeological site, which is within the floodplain of the Cumberland River. The site was discovered in 2018 during a survey conducted on behalf of the Tennessee Department of Transportation ahead of an upcoming highway project. During the years of investigation since discovering the site, archaeologists have uncovered many intact cultural features, which will aid in research regarding the area's heritage.
Now that the site has been investigated, construction efforts can resume for the highway project. The area will soon become part of the SR-141/SR-10 connector. This project is currently in the construction plans development phase, and it is set to begin construction in 2023. The project aims to improve the mobility for the SR-141 corridor, as well as improving safety for the many commuters who travel through this area each day.
