Citizens Against the Pellissippi Parkway Extension, Inc.

Welcome to the CAPPE Website

The mission of Citizens Against the Pellissippi Parkway Extension (CAPPE) is to educate the public about issues regarding the impacts of the Pellissippi Parkway Extension.

CAPPE is a non-profit citizens group opposed to the Pellissippi Parkway Extension. CAPPE supporters are Blount County residents and other concerned citizens who believe this interstate highway is not needed, wastes state resources, and will have negative impacts on the area along the route and on the quality of life in Blount County as a whole.

Please visit the Mission page to read more about our concerns.
