Re: Traffic Advisory – Road Closures for Utility Construction
Lake Avenue Road Closure [August 30 – September 3] – Beginning on Monday, August 30, and lasting through Friday, September 3, KUB and its contractor will close a section of Lake Avenue between Melrose Place and Terrace Avenue to thru traffic daily from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. in association with ongoing sewer system upgrades in the area.
Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction. Appropriate traffic control measures will be in place at each location to assist motorists traveling in these areas. Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use extreme caution and expect temporary delays in these areas.
Finally, don't forget the Jazz Fest and Farmer's Market downtown this weekend and next weekend is Boomsday (for more information visit: http://www.cityofknoxville.org/). Thanks for your continued interest; I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful summer weather.
