GREENEVILLE, TN (WJHL) – A $2.3 million dollar road project, 20 years in the making, will be complete in just a matter of days.

Crews are almost finished with the 3rd and final phase of the Fairgrounds Connector Roads Project in Greene County.

All that’s left is installing a small section of guardrail.

The road goes from Snapps Ferry Road to Rufe Taylor Road.

Greeneville Public Works Director, Brad Peters, say the point of the project is to reduce some traffic on 11E and open up real estate for development.

“It’s going to open up several hundred acres of land for development and we hope to see some businesses come in as a result,” Peters said.

A ribbon cutting for the opening and dedication to the Fairgrounds Connector Roads Project will be held on Friday, November 18 at 2 p.m.
