A setback from a concrete supplier has caused another delay in the completion date of the road construction at West View Middle School. The project is a part of the extension to Interstate 81 from Merchants Greene.

 Dexter Justis, Tennessee Department of Transportation district engineer, said the interchange completion will be pushed back to sometime between Oct. 1 and the school system’s fall break, scheduled for Oct. 16-20.

The new traffic pattern will be switched on a Friday night, or during fall break, so parents will have time to become accustomed to the new traffic flow, Justis explained.

West View has an open house scheduled Thursday, Aug. 24, at which time parents will be updated, according to Dr. Rebekah Patrick, West View principal.


“The changeover during fall break would be amazing for us,” Dr. Patrick said. “That way, parents would have a week to become acquainted with the new way traffic will enter the campus.”
