Submitted on March 23, 2011 at 1:47 PM

A fast-growing college campus means more traffic and to help create a better traffic flow Volunteer State Community College has opened a new entrance to the college. The Gallatin Area Chamber of Commerce participated in the official ceremony marking the opening on Wednesday. The third entrance is located on Enterprise Drive, just off of Greenlea Blvd. It provides easy access to the Highway 386 extension. The student population has grown significantly at Vol State in the last ten years. There were 6822 students in 2001 and 8989 in 2010. That's a 31 percent increase.
