Experiment Station and the UT Extension Eastern Region. The Blount Unit of
the East Tennessee Research and Education Center is located on Singleton Station
Road, which is approximately eight miles south of the UT agricultural campus
in Knoxville off U.S. Highway 129. If approaching from the south, Singleton
Station Road is just over one mile north of the intersection of U.S. 129 and
I-140 (Pellissippi Parkway).
