COLUMBIA, Tenn -- A new highway interchange could disturb the final resting place for some Maury County Residents. The Tennessee Department of Transportation says the loop style on ramp to I-65 at Bear Creek Road is dangerous and outdated. To replace the interchange the state wants to take part of the nearby Jones Cemetery property. After meeting with angry residents, T-DOT agreed to expand the buffer from the gravesite from 15 to 43 feet but residents say that's still too close for comfort. T-DOT says its now working on a revised design for the interchange and will meet with residents once the design is finalized.
