Safety Upgrades Scheduled for Clinton Highway

Updates are scheduled for a 2.6-mile stretch of Clinton Highway from Edgemoor Road to the Knox County line.

This particular section of road is known for its safety issues, with a significant number of wrecks occurring there. Upgrades include resurfacing, a continuous center lane and wider shoulders, and new lane markings to show dedicated passing areas. This project is scheduled for next year, and similar upgrades for Clinton Highway from Clinton to Edgemoor Road are planned for 2018.

A public meeting will be held on Thursday, July 7, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Claxton Community Center, 1150 Edgemoor Road.
