City wants to add road off bypass
extend Magness Drive BEST
Lisa Hobbs photo An effort is underway to extend Magness Drive to Highway 70S bypass. McMinnville officials have asked permission from the state to connect the two roads at this intersection near Three Star Mall.
Consideration is underway to extend Magness Drive to the bypass to alleviate traffic concerns from the construction of Motlow’s Advanced Robotics Center. The Tennessee Department of Transportation is considering a request made by the city of McMinnville to allow another entrance onto Highway 70S if the city extends Magness Drive to the existing three-way intersection near the mall. The Advanced Robotics Center will be located on Vo Tech Drive, which intersects with Magness Drive.
