Re: Traffic Advisory – Road Closure for Utility Construction
Cumberland Avenue Lane Closure [August 23] – KUB will close the eastbound curbside lane of traffic on a section of Cumberland Avenue between S. Twenty First Street and Mountcastle Street from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23, for water system repairs. One eastbound lane and both westbound lanes will remain open on this section of Cumberland Avenue during this period.
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 this location to assist motorists traveling in the areas. Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use extreme caution and expect temporary delays in this area.
Effective July 1, Tennessee’s Move Over Law requires motorists approaching a utility vehicle with flashing lights to move over if safe to do so, creating an empty lane buffer. When changing lanes is not possible, motorists must reduce speed.
