KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Construction on a new transit center will begin this week on the corner of Church Avenue and Hall of Fame Drive, after Monday's groundbreaking ceremony.
The 108,000 square foot facility will have a bus platform across James White Parkway and will be the heart of the KAT system.
