KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – Kingsport transit officials will break ground on a new transit center today in the Model City.
The new transit center will be located at the corner of East Main Street and Sullivan Street, the former location of the Kingsport Foundry.
The project has been years in the making.
K.A.T.S. officials say the new facility will improve passenger safety and efficiency. They also tell us it will allow for more routes in the future.
