Corridor K is a route on the Appalachian Development Highway System that cuts through the mountains of southeastern Tennessee and southwestern North Carolina that the Tennessee Department of Transportation would like to turn into an east-west multilane super highway. The road would connect Asheville with Chattanooga and one of the proposed routes cuts right through the Ocoee River Gorge, putting the river and a popular trails system at risk. 

An economic development and transportation study has been done for the corridor and the TDOT is putting together a planning report and environmental impact statement for the proposed super highway.
