This was part of the Tennessee Valley Dragway (1965 – 1969), looking east to Cleek Road. Had the strip been completed, it would have spanned the 3/4-mile or so between Cleek Road and an area in front of the present Traders Village. Note: the access to this area is gated. It’s on private land.
Interesting history…read about it here.
