In 2016, the Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty. All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.

Drivers that wish to go north on Alcoa Hwy towards downtown Knoxville
- Drivers that wish to go north on Alcoa Hwy towards downtown Knoxville will cross Alcoa Hwy on the new Montlake bridge, turn left on the new feeder road on the east side of Alcoa Hwy and follow that new feeder road to Woodson Dr. There the driver will turn left onto Woodson and right onto Alcoa Hwy.
Traveling southward (towards Maryville) on Alcoa Hwy
- Traveling southward (towards Maryville) on Alcoa Hwy, the exit from Alcoa Hwy to Montlake will no longer be open except to the first 4 residents who front on Montlake (2543, 2535, 2527, and 2519 Montlake). The barrier signage at Alcoa Hwy will indicate “LOCAL RESIDENTS ONLY”, which means ONLY the 4 addresses listed above at this time.
- Those on Lynbrulee, Craghead and Trillium and all other residents who travel Montlake will have to access their properties by exiting at the Maloney bridge and driving through Lakemoor Hills to the intersection of Montlake and Maloney.
- To leave Lakemoor Hills and go southbound on Alcoa Hwy, you will need to drive to Maloney Rd. and enter Alcoa Hwy by driving ¾ of the way around the roundabout and taking the exit to Alcoa Hwy.
- This change will place a great increase in traffic on Maloney Rd. I encourage each of you to have patience and drive the speed limit (30 MPH) to make the roads safe for all.
Western Feeder Road (Lakemoor Hills Side)
- The feeder road on the west side (Lakemoor Hills side) of Alcoa Hwy will be open to 2-way traffic between the Montlake roundabout and the Mt. Vernon bridge. This will allow the residents of Martha Washington Heights to join the Lakemoor Hills residents as we move northward to Woodson to enter Alcoa Hwy.
- The remainder of the western feeder road (from Mt. Vernon bridge southward) will not be continuous to the Maloney bridge until AT&T relocates some telephone poles that restrict the completion of the paving. As we get more information about that progress, we will pass along to you.
Eastern Feeder Road (Martha Washington Heights Side)
- The feeder road on the eastern side of Alcoa Hwy (Martha Washington Heights side) will be 2-way from Mt. Vernon bridge past National Fitness to SHA Automotive.

Reports of water outages have been… trickling in. As of this announcement Bluff Point, Timberlake, Blow, Tall Pine, Manor Road, Fox Chase, McCarrell Lane, Maloney. KUB has received… a flood of reports.
Oh wait! … News Splash; Water is back on. Check your taps.
Hello neighbors, in preparation for some possible outages due to hurricane Frances, C.L. would like to provide a link for your convenience to the K.U.B. Outage Center.
And more specifically the checklist for preparedness.
Here is an excerpt from the KUB Website:
How You Can Prepare for Storms
Our employees are prepared, and we want our customers to be prepared too. You can be prepared for storms by planning ahead:
- Keep emergency supplies on hand such as batteries, flashlights, a battery-operated radio, nonperishable food items, bottled water, and a charged cell phone. The Red Cross suggests including a supply of your necessary medications.
- Keep your KUB account information up-to-date, such as your phone number and e-mail address. A correct phone number will allow you to use the automated system to report your outage and check its status. You can update your contact information by logging into your account and choosing Manage Account. For additional tips, review our Power Outage Reference Guide.
- Have a plan for what you’d do in the event of a multi-day power outage. This may include getting a hotel room, or staying with friends or family.
- Have and know how to safely operate a portable generator. Be sure to follow the instructions in your owners manual, as well as these tips:
- Generators should be installed and inspected by licensed electricians. Improperly installed generators can be a safety hazard to utility workers as well as to homeowners.
- Never connect the generator to your home’s main wiring circuit. Disconnect your home from the power system before hooking up a generator. If you don’t, electricity may flow backward into the power lines, endangering you, your neighbors, and the linemen who are working to restore power.
- Locate the generator outside your home. Gasoline-powered generators can produce deadly carbon monoxide.
- Plug appliances directly into the generator. Use extension cords if necessary, but do not exceed the recommended wattage noted on the generator.
Here’s some news from C.L. Overman regarding the power outage that began around 6pm:
Just traded emails and he is trying to find out the severity of the damage from the downed tree at Tall Pine/Montlake. Will advise.
Not good news from a KUB rep. The tree broke a cross arm so they are having to pull new primary and neutral. Making an estimate of time is just a guess. Could be a while.
Contract CNQ029 Alcoa Highway SR 115 (US 129)
November 28, 2017 Project Update
Crews continue to work on Collector Road #1 at Maloney Road (west). Maloney Rd. detours using Ginn Dr. to access Alcoa Hwy will remain in place until the collector is complete. The contractor is working to try to get the collector complete to the stage where traffic can use it to access Alcoa Hwy. Hopefully weather will allow this to be done before the new year.
Wall #8 construction is ongoing. Many of the smaller retaining walls on the south end of the project are complete. Wall crews will head north to begin work on Wall #9. Wall #9 is located on the west side of Alcoa Hwy between the end of the project and Montlake Dr. In order to do this work, southbound traffic will need to be shifted toward the center of Alcoa Hwy to allow room to work. During this shift, the southbound left turn lane to Woodson Dr. will be removed. Motorist will be allowed right turns from Woodson to NB Alcoa Hwy only. Motorist should prepare to detour using John Sevier Hwy & Maryville Pike. Traffic is expected to remain in this condition thru March 2018.
The Traffic Alert regarding the traffic shift will be shared with the media today.
