Partial Closure of Lakeshore Park Greenway

Posted: 05/29/2015
KUB and its contractor will close a section of the Lakeshore Park Greenway the week of June 8-12, to facilitate safe conditions as work is performed on the utility infrastructure in the park.

The section of greenway that will be closed is a 300 foot segment located near the South Northshore Drive entrance, and all other portions of the park and greenway will remain open. In the event of inclement weather, this work will be moved to the following week, June 15-19. 

KUB Closure at Lakeshore Park

To familiarize greenway users with the upcoming changes, signage will be placed at key locations throughout the park beginning on Friday, May 29. These locations include both the South Northshore Drive and Lyons View Pike park entrances, the parking areas near the ball fields within the park, and at the north and sound ends of the greenway section to be closed. The impacted section of greenway will be closed continuously throughout the duration of the work. KUB asks park patrons to please respect the signage and barricades in place, and to avoid this section of greenway due to ongoing excavation, as well as the presence of construction equipment, vehicles, and workers. 

KUB thanks City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation for their assistance with this project, and its customers for their cooperation. Customers with questions or concerns can call 865-558-2330 after normal business hours to leave a message that will be followed-up with a call from a KUB representative by the end of the next business day.
