Gay Street Bridge Closed Oct. 9, 2019

Posted: 10/08/2019
The Gay Street Bridge will be closed to all traffic from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9.  

During the closure, travelers should use alternate routes—Henley Street or James White Parkway—to cross the river. 
The Red Line of Knox Area Transit’s free trolley will cease running at 6:30 p.m. and resume its route from Regal (101 E. Blount Avenue) after the bridge reopens. 

KAT Bus Route 40 will detour onto Church Avenue, make a left on Henley Street and resume its regular route using Blount Avenue onto Sevier Avenue. 

Detour signs will be posted to alert transit riders to the changes.
