Local Officials ask for Road Expansion

Coffee County leaders are asking the state to widen Highway 41 South from the Manchester City Limits to the Wattendorf Highway. Mayor Gary Cordell met with Transportation  Department Officials earlier this month. Cordell says added employment at two area industrial parks has increased congestion on the 2 lane highway. He says 4 lane travel would also improve access to the new Coffee County Jail. Republican State Rep. Judd Matheny backs the widening project. He wants the state to fast track the plan with an eye toward completing the project in 2-3 years.
