Friday that a portion of the city's Third Creek Greenway will be temporarily
closed for construction improvements. The portion of the greenway that runs
from UT student apartments on Sutherland Avenue to Concord Street will be
closed from June 8 until July 31.
The closure is necessary in order for the city to construct the Third
Creek Greenway connector from Painter Avenue across Concord Street to Tyson
Park. This new connection will make it easier and safer for trail users
to cross Concord Street. The city will be making drainage improvements and
trail repairs during this period. Trail repairs include paving this section
as part of the city's effort to make improvements to this older portion
of the Third Creek Greenway.
Knoxville Utility Board will also be working on a sanitary sewer rehabilitation
project in this area. Trail users can access the greenway at Tyson Park
east of Concord Street.
