There will be a public meeting on Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m. to review final design plans for the Sevier Avenue Streetscapes Improvement Project. The meeting will be held at South Knoxville Elementary School, 801 Sevier Ave. 

Representatives from the City of Knoxville’s Office of Redevelopment and Engineering Department along with consultant Vaughn and Melton will present final designs plans for the upcoming streetscapes project along Sevier Avenue. 

Proposed improvements for Sevier Avenue include a new two-lane streetscape with bike lanes, improved sidewalks, street lighting, on-street parking and a new roundabout at the Sevier Avenue, Island Home Avenue and Foggy Bottom Street intersections. 

Streetscape improvements are also planned for Barber and Foggy Bottom streets and will provide connectivity to the new Waterfront Drive and Suttree Landing Park.
