Bridge Progress….

The thriving metropolis of Townsend, TN just went from having one traffic light to having three!  Ok, so two of those are temporary while they will be constructing the new bridge at Tremont Outdoor Resort, but hey, it’s exciting news none-the-less.  The two new traffic signals are on the main road just before and after the entrance to Tremont.  Currently, they are flashing caution lights, but that will change as construction progresses.

The State has been working on moving all of the necessary electrical lines and putting up signage for safety.  The temporary bridge should be coming any day now, as soon as the weather lets up enough for them to install it.  Speaking of weather, in case you haven’t heard or just aren’t in our part of the country, we have been getting an onslaught of rain lately.  The Little River looked like a class three in terms of rapids this past weekend.  If you have ever tubed down the Little River, you know that isn’t status quo.  Here are a couple of shots of the water from the bridge going into Tremont.  This is normally a relatively calm spot in the river…

Well, that’s all the news for now.  Stay tuned for more info on the bridge and other exciting Tremont happenings!
