The objective of the Downtown Circulation and Mobility Study was to develop strategies to improve multimodal access and mobility within Downtown Knoxville. This plan builds upon some of the previous work and strategies identified in the Downtown ImprovementStrategy prepared by the City of Knoxville’s Downtown Advisory Committee.

The study area is bounded by Depot Street to the north, Hall of Fame Drive to the east, the Tennessee River to the south, and 11th Street to the west.

Through coordination with the Steering Committee, two primary objectives for the study were identified:

• Determining a feasible layout for one‐way and two‐way streets within the core of the Central Business District (CBD), and
• Defining the most efficient layout for the City’s primary north‐south destination corridor in the Central Business District (CBD), Gay Street.

The Study was finalized in April 2015. Click here to view the Downtown Circulation and Mobility Study.
