Clarksville, TN – I have been working on improvements and stoplights for the Exit 11 and Sango Road area since 2000. This was long before I got on the council for Ward 10. After being elected to the council, in 2007 I tried again as well as in 2009. In the past year, we finally had some success.

There are likely several more weeks of work to finalize any issues and construction requirements. It is possible that work could begin within a couple of months. The project is scheduled to be complete not later than June 2013. «Read the rest of this article»
