From staff reports

— Athens Police Chief Floyd Johnson says the Trail of Tears Commemorative Motorcycle Ride on Saturday will not come into Limestone County on U.S. 72 at County Line Road.

This year, they will get on Mooresville Road at Interstate 565 and take Mooresville Road north to U.S. 72 and then come through the city at that point.

Riders are expected in Athens between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Access to U.S. 72 West will be blocked.
