Paving Operations to Begin in Cedar Bluff Area

Posted: 10/17/2014
October 17, 2014 - Road paving operations are scheduled to begin in the Cedar Bluff area on Sunday, Oct. 19. The work will be performed at night - from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. - from Sunday through Thursday. Weather permitting, the work is anticipated to take approximately two weeks to complete.

The streets scheduled to be resurfaced are:

* North Cedar Bluff Road from Sherrill Boulevard to North Peters Road
* Executive Park Drive from North Cedar Bluff Road to Park Village Road
* Park Village Road from Parktop Lane to Executive Park Drive
* North Peters Road from North Cedar Bluff Road to Kingston Pike

During the resurfacing of Cedar Bluff Road, the City of Knoxville will be working with the Tennessee Department of Transportation on a joint improvement project. In addition to new pavement and enhanced pavement markings, the project will provide more efficient movement for southbound traffic getting onto the Interstate 40/75 ramps.

One noticeable change: The right-hand southbound Cedar Bluff Road lane dedicated solely to accessing the I-40 westbound entrance ramp will now access both the I-40 westbound and 1-40 eastbound entrance ramps. Traffic going to the eastbound I-40 ramp will have a continuous traffic flow through the Cedar Bluff and I-40 traffic signal located north of the interstate. With continuous traffic flow, the redesign is intended to lessen backups during peak traffic hours.
