Open Burning Ban - September 17th, 2019

Effective immediately, there is a ban on all open burning in Rutherford County as continued dry conditions have created a significant fire hazard. Rutherford County Fire Rescue Chief Larry Farley advises that citations may be issued for any incidents of burning, at the discretion of authorities. The ban will remain in effect until enough rain occurs to reduce the fire hazard; at that time an announcement lifting the ban will be made.

Blue Raider Bridge Dedication - September 5, 2019

The dedication of the Bridge over Broad was held September 5th. The name was revealed to be the Blue Raider Bridge. Representatives from MTSU, Rutherford County, and the City of Murfreesboro and State Legislature were present to speak about the importance of the occasion.

Rutherford County Mayor Ketron stated that “It’s been a long time coming, long time coming, back in 1990 I believe the State of Tennessee realized the traffic congestion that it was the most congested intersection in the whole state of TN.”

“This bridge bridges us together with the relationship with MTSU.” “It also bridges the fact of Mayor McFarland and the city council and our county commission working together.”

Mayor Ketron also announced a fundraising effort that will add Blue Raider blue lights to bridge to be visible at night. Learn more and view photos from the dedication.
