Let There Be Light Signal

By Thomas Sellers Jr.
Armstrong Field Road 6-29 Armstrong Field Road Bridge 5 6-6-17There is a new intersection on Highway 51 heading to Millington. Last Thursday the signal lights were working at Armstrong Field Road and 51. While traveling Highway 51 from Millington heading toward Memphis, Armstrong Field Road appears before Fite Road. Earlier this month Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr., hosted a dedication ceremony for the new bridge and road that eliminates traffic delays at a railroad crossing in North Shelby County.
Shelby County Commissioner Terry Roland and area community leaders attended the event where the new bridge crosses over the Canadian National Railroad tracks on the newly aligned Fite Road/Armstrong Field Road, just east of Highway 51. Armstrong Field Road is named after a former grass airfield nearby that once hosted the arrival of Charles Lindbergh in his Spirit of St. Louis airplane back in 1927.
