Busy Kingsport intersection set to reopen

KINGSPORT — The Sullivan and Clinchfield intersection was scheduled to re-open for traffic at 2 p.m. today.

For more than four months, Thomas Construction has worked to improve this high-traveled intersection by rebuilding and widening it to three lanes, removing some of the older water lines and installing new water lines across Sullivan at Roller Street.

Though the intersection was initially closed to all traffic, Clinchfield was eventually opened to thru-traffic as crews worked roughly one block on either side of the intersection, now concrete with 10 foot travel lanes and an 11-foot center lane.
