Campbell Station repaving to begin soon


Campbell Station Road hasn’t seen the last of construction this year.

At its meeting Thursday, Aug. 26, Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a resurfacing plan that includes Campbell Station from Parkside Drive to Interstate 40/75. That resurfacing likely would begin this fall, while the rest of Campbell Station is still under construction.

Also on the resurfacing list are Boring Road (Baldwin Park to eastern leg), the Town Hall parking lot and the McFee Road northern roundabout, near Bridgemore subdivision.

That roundabout will not only be resurfaced but also enclosed, so curbing will run around the two legs of the roundabout not currently in use.


“It will look much more attractive when we’re done,” Town Engineer Darryl Smith said.

Other roads to be resurfaced are located inside subdivisions: Butternut Lane (Sugarwood); Nutwood Circle (Sugarwood); Ackley Circle (Fox Run); Mauser Point (Fox Run); Camdenbridge Drive (Camden Grove); Bridge-port Drive (Brixworth); Breeze-way Drive (Brixworth); Autumn Leaves Lane (Tur-key Creek Woods); Confederacy Way (Shi-loh Condominiums).

The resurfacing contract was awarded to Greenback Asphalt for a low bid of $474,962.30.

In other business, the Board:

• Approved next year’s Farragut municipal election date, in which two aldermen positions will be up for re-election. Election day is set for Tuesday, April 12, 2011.

“This is the last election we will have in April. After this, they’ll be in August of even years,” Mayor Ralph McGill said.

The Town’s elections are being realigned to coincide with Knox County’s.

• Approved changing the name of the “Buy in Farragut” campaign to “Shop Farragut.”

• Approved, on second reading, an amendment to Farragut Municipal Code to allow a second wall sign for commercial buildings without any paved surface in the front yard

• Approved, on first reading, an ordinance that would delete the Town’s current travel policy, which is an ordinance in Farragut Municipal Code, and replace it with a new one. The new travel policy will be an appendix in the Personnel Policies and Procedures Manual. The Board also approved the new travel policy.

• Approved a professional services agreement for historical research and manuscript of the history of Farragut for $10,000.

• Approved a new conceptual design for Town greenway signage. The signage would be the same as that used on City of Knoxville greenways.

• Approved an actuarial services contract to review the Town’s retirement plan. The contract was awarded to USI Consulting for a bid of $10,240.
