Haslam Recommends Church Avenue Transit Station

Knoxville (WVLT) - Downtown Knoxville is one step closer to a new transit center.

Mayor Bill Haslam has announced the city will recommend building a $27 million facility at the east end of the Church Avenue Viaduct.

The mayor says a study of three proposed sites showed Church Avenue to have the best mix of location, construction and operating costs.

It also meets federal criteria.
