Exit 6 - Dunlap Lane

As our population grows, so does the congestion of our roads. Traffic near Exit 4 has become a hazard for drivers throughout the day. With the impending startup of Hankook on the east side of I-24 and Rossview schools already on the west, Exit 8 is about to become worse. And right in between these exits is Tennova Hospital.

Congestion in these areas will delay drivers from reaching our local hospital during times of emergency. Minutes matter when lives are at stake, and we cannot afford for patients to be stuck in traffic. Dunlop Lane is becoming more and more populated, with Beachaven Winery being joined by new malls, new neighborhoods to the east and a giant new factory to the south.

It’s time to create new on- and off-exit ramps for Dunlop Lane, making accessibility to our hospital much easier for emergency personnel as well as relieving the congestion at Exit 4 and (soon) Exit 8. It is time for a new exit ... Exit 6.
