LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – La Follette was a one-lane town for more than a month. For now, it’s back to a three-lane traffic configuration in Downtown La Follette.
The Central Avenue Bridge refurbishment project forced La Follette into a dramatic traffic pattern change starting last September. In April, when the flower bed project began, traffic was funneled down to one lane for a long stretch through town. Beginning Wednesday afternoon, the Jacksboro-bound side of traffic was switched back to two lanes.
Crews have constructed all six of the north side flower beds. The last six on the other side of Central Avenue are yet to be built. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/21/2020-6AM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
