Officials estimate that the work will begin around 7:30AM Thursday morning, and that is when the new and strong signal for the northern end of the county will go off for only a few hours.

MTE officials hope to have the new poles and lines installed by around 2:00PM in the afternoon, and the strong signal will come back on-the-air in Smyrna and La Vergne.
