Dickson does a u-turn on u-turns
By David Barkholz
U-turns have become taboo in downtown Dickson.
As drivers head downtown, they should know that the Dickson City Council this month voted 7-0 to outlaw u-turns at the intersection of College and Main streets as well as on Main Street north of the railroad tracks.
The change on Main Street north of the railroad tracks simply codifies the obvious since Main is one-way at that point.
Holiday shoppers will have to circle the block if they’re tempted to make a u-turn at the busy intersection of Main and College streets. The prohibitions are permanent, Dickson Police Chief Jeff Lewis said.
