Brethern Church Road to be renamed to Brethren Church Road


JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Washington County Commission approved renaming a road that has been a source of confusion.

Commissioners voted Monday evening to rename Brethern Church Road to Brethren Church Road.

First responders have expressed concern because the road’s name is similar to another road, Brethren Church Drive, which is also located in Jonesborough. Both roads are about nine miles apart.

County leaders hope renaming Brethern Church Road to a more correct spelling will cut down on the confusion.

Addresses along the road will also be changed to four-digit numbers.
