KNOXVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Transportation has coordinated with contractor Charles Blalock and Sons, Inc. to provide relief to the traffic delays that have been occurring on a bridge replacement project on Scenic 73 in the City of Townsend. Stables Drive has been reduced to one lane since the project began earlier this year, with traffic being controlled by a temporary traffic signal.
