The Long & Winding Road


Abstract:
The idea for a road connecting Tellico Plains, Tennessee to Robbinsville, North Carolina originated in 1958; however, it would take another thirty-eight years and $100 million to complete the forty-two-mile Cherohala Skyway. It was completed October 2, 1996 and was the most expensive road project ever undertaken in the state. The road is a marvel of engineering and was constructed over an area once considered impassable.
