Re: Traffic Advisory – Road Closure for Utility Work [All closures and work are weather permitting]

Tyson Park Street Road Closure [April 23-27] – KUB will close a section of Tyson Park Street to thru traffic between Kingston Pike and the Alcoa Highway Overpass starting Monday, April 23, and lasting through Friday, April 27, as roadway resurfacing work is completed following utility construction in the area. This road closure will be in effect continuously during the listed dates. Access to Tyson Park Street and parking within Tyson Park will remain open via South Concord Street. The Third Creek Greenway will also remain open while this work is completed.

Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction. Appropriate traffic control measures and devices will be in place throughout construction zones 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.
