U.S. 64 Relocation

Cherokee County, North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) proposes to relocate a 4.9-mile section of U.S. Highway 64 from east of U.S. 19 in Murphy to east of N.C. 141 near Peachtree in Cherokee County. NCDOT has requested that TVA grant the following:

  • A permanent easement over approximately 55 acres for new right-of-way
  • Section 26a approval for 21 stream crossings, including two bridges across the Hiwassee River
  • The relocation of portions of TVA’s Murphy-Blairsville 161-kV transmission line, the Murphy-Nottely 69-kV line, and the Murphy-Chatuge 69-kV line.

In assessing the impacts of its proposed actions, TVA is adopting the 1994 Federal Highway Administration EA and 1995 FONSI, and further supplementing it to document TVA’s consideration of the project information generated since 1995.
