On Saturday in Blount County, TDOT crews will open one of the most unusual intersections in the country.

It's called a "Diverging Diamond" or a double-crossover. It will allow drivers to get on and off the US 129 Bypass from Bessemer Street and Middlesettlements Road.

Eastbound lanes are set to open Saturday morning. The westbound side opens Tuesday.

The intersection is the first of its kind in the state.
