Scenic Middlebrook Less Scenic

One of the bills Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law removes the Scenic Highway designation on a portion of Highway 169. That artery is better known as Middlebrook Pike. (You didn’t know Middlebrook Pike is a Scenic Highway?)

The removal fronts property that has been optioned by Tennova Healthcare for the construction of a new hospital to replace the hospital off Broadway formerly known as St. Mary’s. No longer being scenic clears the way for the new hospital and allows signs out front.
