Rumble Status

. . Thanks to everyone who have sent notes to TDOT.  Although this section of SR-258 is within Federal 4-foot shoulder (mostly) guidelines for rumbling, I am hoping if TDOT learns of the importance of this route to bicyclists we can get extra consideration.
. . This morning I sent Jessica Wilson (TDOT Bike/Ped Coordinator) my report on this application. You can access that report here.
. . TDOT does not plan to rumble the 2-foot wide shoulder section between Drakes Creek and Long Hollow Pike, but the current plans are to rumble any part that has a 4-foot wide or more shoulder. The newly repaired and widened shoulder on New Hope improves safety for bicyclists, but it looks like we are going to have to learn to dodge a 8-inch wide rumble on the Fog line.
