A gas line issue has created a roadblock for opening the new four-lane to Woodbury. The completion date is now pushed back to November.According to TDOT spokesperson Jennifer Flynn, the issue with the gas line has caused the delay from the original Sept. 30 completion date.“Work is not expected to complete on schedule and we are presently discussing a time extension on the project due to an unexpected gas line,” Flynn said. “The project completion date will likely be nearer to November.”The project is a 12-mile stretch of new four-lane highway which will run from Newtown to past Eastside School in Cannon County.
