NEWPORT-With gravel supplies dwindling, Cocke County Road
Superintendent Kenneth Ford advised members of the Cocke County Highway
Commission Tuesday night that the department should have a rock crusher
operating by the end of next week.
Ford, who had reported last month that the county's
crusher had broken, said he was able to find a replacement for $10,000.
"The old crusher has been there since 1953," he
said. "We were told it would cost $140,000 to $150,000 to get it repaired.
We had been looking online for a used one we could buy. We finally found one in
Jefferson County and were able to get it for $10,000."
