Knox County Traffic Alert for Alcoa Highway and John Sevier Highway – traffic pattern change effective 4/19/2023
Montlake Single Lane Traffic
During work hours over the next several weeks, Pipeline Construction, KUB’s waterline contractor, will be boring and installing a new 8″ waterline along the north side of Montlake Drive between Timberlake and Tall Pine.
This project requires the contractor to close the westbound lane of Montlake to accommodate equipment and personnel. After hours, it appears that the contractor is doing a good job removing obstacles to traffic.
The delay both directions on Montlake should be reasonable except possibly at rush hours, AM and PM. Please be considerate to the construction crew members as they are working hard to improve our water service.
I’ve driven the construction area both directions several times and it should generally flow pretty well if we are patient and plan ahead for some modest delay. I’ve already seen a very limited number of folks throw their hands up in utter disgust over a minor delay. Come on, people. This our neighborhood, not west Knoxville or New York City….
If you have suggestions, complaints, call BR-549; no actually my number is 363-2663 24/7 and I’m your friendly (generally) LHHA KUB rep C.L. Overman..
