Feb 01, 2013

Washington, D.C. – Representative Mark Meadows (NC-11) released the following statement after speaking with the Assistant Administrator and other officials within the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) last night about the landslide on U.S. 441.

“Last night I spoke with the Assistant Administrator and other officials within the FHWA about rebuilding U.S. 441," he said. "The highway is the primary thoroughfare in accessing the Great Smoky Mountains National Park from North Carolina, and it is critical that it is open before the peak tourism season begins. I look forward to working together with them to speed up the contracting process and ensure that U.S. 441 is rebuilt as quickly as possible so Western North Carolina does not take a financial hit.”
