ADVISORY FROM THE TOWN OF JONESBOROUGH:
The Tennessee Department of Transportation will begin its paving project on Jackson Boulevard (Highway 11-E) on Monday, Aug. 19. The working hours for construction will be Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. The resurfacing project will begin on the west end of the town of Jonesborough, near Persimmon Ridge Road, and progress all the way to W. Market Street.
This project will require construction crews to shut down one lane of traffic. Therefore, traffic delays are to be expected. Due to the nature of the milling process, there will be a lot of dust and small loose gravel, as well as grooved pavement. Please use caution and be alert to the construction crews as they work to improve the road. The project is expected to last a few weeks, but could continue until early November.
For additional information, call the Tennessee Department of Transportation at (423)928-6957 or Jonesborough Town Hall at (423)753-1031.
