Section of 20th Street Closed for 3 Days

Posted: 11/10/2015
A section of North 20th Street between Cumberland Avenue and White Avenue will be closed from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, Nov. 11-13.

The closure will allow workers to install a new sewer main, part of the City of Knoxville’s $17 million reconstruction of Cumberland Avenue. The Cumberland reconstruction will modernize aging infrastructure and change the existing four-lane street to a three-lane cross section with a raised median and left-turn lanes at intersections. Sidewalks will be widened and landscaped, and utility lines relocated, to create a more attractive, safer, pedestrian-friendly corridor.
