Motorists who live and work on Allen’s Chapel Road will have to take a detour for a few days starting Monday, August 16.
The City of Smithville will be replacing existing metal tiles with new concrete tiles across Allen’s Chapel Road near the intersection with Highway 56 (Cookeville Highway). According to Kevin Robinson, the city’s public works director, the project may take up to two weeks.
Those who access Allen’s Chapel Road from Cookeville Highway to get home or to work at the industrial park will need to take an alternate route, possibly via Big Hurricane Road over to Allen Street and then back to Allen’s Chapel Road until the project is completed.
