Clarksville saves big on street projects

Midway Park permanently closed for effluent line construction



Midway Park is permanently closed as effluent lines are under construction as part of the town’s wastewater plant expansion.

The facilities formerly located at Midway Park will be moved to the property that formerly housed the Clarksville Drive-In, which the town purchased in October.


A traffic light being installed at the intersection of Blackiston Mill Road and Potters Lane is expected to go live the weekend of Nov. 16, Project Coordinator Brittany Montgomery said.

The signal will initially be set to blink yellow on Blackiston Mill, while the lights facing Potters Lane will blink red. The signal will behave like a normal traffic light after a few weeks, Montgomery said. Montgomery warned Clarksville Police Chief Mark Palmer of the increased possibility of accidents at the intersection as drivers get used to the new signal being there.
