Slip-sliding roadway reopens

‘You’ll feel like it is the good old days, because you’ll be going up a gravel road’

By Cindy Simpson

Rockwood’s Airport Road is now open again, but it may be rough going.
Roane County Road Superintendent Dennis Ferguson said it was important to get the road open this week before Thanksgiving, but warned that while it is navigable, the road is not paved yet.

“Because of the weather, we weren’t able to do it,” Ferguson said.

Rockwood Mayor James Watts announced the news at the Rockwood City Council meeting Monday, thanking Ferguson and the city’s street department, including superintendent Hugh Lee O’Dell.
