KUB Plant Upgrades Require Neyland Dr. Lane Shifts & Greenway Closures

Posted: 01/11/2019
KUB and its contractor will shift the two eastbound lanes of traffic flow on a short section of Neyland Drive starting Monday, January 14, and lasting through February 2021 as part the Kuwahee Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade project.


KUB Plant Work Affects Neyland Dr


The eastbound curbside lane will be closed as part of construction with the center turn lane used to shift traffic and maintain two lanes of flow on this section of Neyland Drive. Both westbound lanes of traffic will remain open on this section of Neyland Drive with normal traffic flow. Due to traffic flow shifting to the center turn lane, eastbound traffic will not be permitted to make left-hand turns on this section of Neyland Drive.

In addition to the lane shifts on Neyland Drive, there will be intermittent closures on the section of Neyland Greenway located behind the Kuwahee Treatment Plant near the Tennessee River. This section of Neyland Greenway will otherwise remain open, and KUB will coordinate with City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation to communicate any closures well ahead of time.

The TWRA boat ramp on Neyland Drive will be accessible only to emergency vehicles during this period.  

Customers with questions or concerns can call 865-558-2331 after normal business hours to leave a message that will be followed-up with a call from a KUB representative by the end of the next business day.
