As possible evidence of the progress of ongoing negotiations with Project Falcon, Mayor Bob Rial told county commissioners the state wants to build a new road to the back side of the William D. Field-Dickson County Industrial Park. At Monday’s work session, Rial said the county is “still in discussions” with the unnamed Fortune 500 company that is reportedly choosing between Dickson and Jonesboro, Arkansas, for a new manufacturing facility. Rial said the Tennessee Department of Transportation is proposing that a new road be built to provide “ingress and egress” to the southeast part of the park, where the county has offered to donate 146 acres to the company. Rial said TDOT and the company would fund the road construction and he is not asking the commission to commit any funds. “I’m not interested in putting any more money into the deal,” Rial said. The mayor told commissioners he would bring a TDOT resolution authorizing a study for the proposed road to its meeting next month for approval. Local officials announced last year the unnamed company is considering Dickson for a multiple phase project that likely would be a $165 million investment and 300 new jobs, with a potential to grow to $250 million and as many as 400 jobs. Rial said discussions with the company resumed recently after a brief suspension.
