Please expect increased traffic impact in and around Downtown Knoxville, James White Parkway, Kingston Pike, I-40, I-275 and I-640 leading into downtown Knoxville.

The Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum parking Garages (2,600 Parking spaces) will be open, but are expected to fill up by 7:00 AM. Overflow parking has been arranged at Chilhowee Park with shuttle bus service available to and from the Knoxville Coliseum.

All downtown Knoxville parking lots should expect additional traffic.
