Road to be named in Swanson’s honor

A 1.6 mile stretch of road that leads to the boat dock at Lazy River Acres will carry the name of a Knox County Supervisor who passed away in August of this year.

Knox County Supervisors gave their approval on re-naming the portion of 518 Avenue that goes north of Hwy 12. The concrete road will be known as “Rayder’s Road”.

Swanson, who served as Supervisor in District Two, put a lot of effort into getting the road paved, according to Supervisor Virgil Miller.

“For years and years people had wanted to have the road paved,” Miller said.
