The Tennessee Department of Transportation has completed improvements to the intersection of Hwys. 58 and 72 south of Kingston.
TDOT used safety grants to fund work to the intersection, which has been the site of a number of serious and fatal car crashes.
“I am very pleased that the intersection of State Route 72 at State Route 58 has been improved,” said state Sen. Ken Yager, R-Harriman.
Yager was Roane County Executive when he first sought improvements to the road. He was elected to the Tennessee Senate in 2008.
