The Tennessee Department of Transportation plans to overhaul Jefferson Pike in Smyrna. The department says they will spend $28.6-million dollars to widen Jefferson Pike. The first phase of the project is between Nissan Drive and State Route 840. The first section of the road to be widened is 3.7-miles in length. The project will likely begin next year.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
