Have you driven to Oak Ridge recently? The new four-lane section from the old guard gates to Illinois Avenue has been opened. It is glorious.
The road is wide and smooth, with generous and clearly marked bike lanes.
It is a joy to drive, whether you are heading north into Oak Ridge or heading south to Roane County.
More work is being done to widen the rest of the stretch so that the entire segment will be four lanes from Kingston to Oak Ridge. The work is expected to be completed in 2012.
This work is good news for both communities.
