Busy Knox Intersection to Close at Various Times This Week


Work continues to improve roads and other upgrades in the Industrial Park in Knox.

With that, Knox Mayor Rick Chambers said 300 East and Culver Road will be closed at various times this week for the installment of a gas line in that area. Millers Construction will be performing the work and the travel interruption is only expected to affect this one week.

Flagmen will be out to direct traffic, but you may need to seek a different route of travel in that part of the city just for this week.

The main focus of the overall improvement project is the widening of the roads to accommodate the high volume of truck traffic. The truck drivers are having a difficult time maneuvering their vehicles in the allotted road space. The county and the city have contributed funds toward this project to help make it easier for the industrial businesses to transport goods that are shipped to various locations around the world.
