As a frequent past visitor and hiker to the Smokies this also is a(nother)
great disappointment.

Does anyone know where the new road is proposed to be built?  Are they
planning on destroying any existing trails or virgin forest?

What a waste.  The Great Smokies are the most polluted park in America.
Air pollution from vehicles is terrible.  So the solution?  More roads.
