Neyland Drive Lane Closures & Neyland Greenway Path Shifts

Posted: 06/06/2023
KUB Closure NeylandKUB contractor crews will implement temporary lane closures on Neyland Drive between Joan Cronan Way and the Henley Street Bridge nightly from 9 p.m. – 7 a.m. starting Wednesday, June 7, 2023, and lasting through February 2024 as work is performed on the wastewater collection system.

At least one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. Additionally, the contractor will intermittently shift short sections of pathway along the Neyland Greenway as part of this work. This work will not impact the entire stretch of Neyland Drive and the Neyland Greenway at the same time.

Lane closures and greenway shifts will be limited to the immediate area where crews are working.

Appropriate traffic control measures, including flaggers, channeling devices, signs, and barricades, will be in place to assist motorists and pedestrians traveling in these areas.

KUB and its contractor will coordinate with the University of Tennessee and government agencies to minimize traffic impacts during special events on campus and the downtown area. Follow-up advisories will be issued as needed for closures in this area.

Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction.

Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use caution and expect temporary delays in these areas.
