Cumberland Avenue Construction Update:
Beginning Monday November 21, westbound traffic will shift to the north side of Cumberland Avenue between 19th and 17th Streets so that the contractor can remove the remaining trolley track located in the middle of the roadway.
During this week, construction crews will cut and begin the hammering of the asphalt and concrete around the trolley tracks next week during day time hours.
Beginning at 6 pm Sunday, November 27 work will be 24/7 to complete the trolley track removal and crews will work around the clock through Wednesday, November 30 at 6 pm.
No left turns will be allowed between 17th and North 19th streets during this time. Night time work will cease Wednesday, November 30, which is the first day of the University of Tennessee study period. All paving work will be complete and left turns at North 19th and 18th will be restored by the morning of Thursday, December 8, in time for University of Tennessee Graduation.
