KNOXVILLE — A section of traffic lanes on the eastbound side of Neyland Drive near the University of Tennessee will be shifted away from the Tennessee River beginning Wednesday, December 14.
The curbside lane of eastbound Neyland Drive between Leinard Lane and Lake Loudoun Boulevard will be closed through August 2012, as part of ongoing wastewater system upgrades in the area.
Two eastbound lanes will be maintained on this section of Neyland Drive during this period, as the inside lane will remain open and the second eastbound lane will be shifted to the center turn lane through the work zone.
Both westbound lanes of Neyland Drive will remain open at all times during the work. Pavement markings, barricades, and signs will be in place to alert motorists and direct traffic through the area.
