A couple of intersection safety projects should go out for bid in early 2013, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

The state previously approved safety improvements for the New Highway 68 intersection with Isbill Road in Madisonville and the intersections of Hidden Brook Drive, Briarcliff Road and Nichols Road with New Highway 68 in Sweetwater.

A traffic signal will be put up at the Isbill Road intersection and a turn lane and safety signage will be key elements of the improvement package for the intersection in Sweetwater, according to TDOT's latest road project update obtained by The Advocate & Democrat this month.

Both intersections have long been considered dangerous spots by many motorists with the Sweetwater intersections' safety coming into major discussion after a fatal wreck in the immediate area in 2010.
