KUB Lane Closures on Deane Hill Dr. and Chapman Hwy.

Posted: 07/08/2016
Due to utility maintenance, KUB will have lane closures on Deane Hill Dr. on July 11 and Chapman Hwy. July 11-October.

(West Knoxville) Deane Hill Drive Lane Closure [July 11] – KUB crews will reduce a section of Deane Hill Drive to one alternating lane of traffic between Glen Ives Way and Golf Club Road from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Monday, July 11, as work is performed on the water distribution system in the area. The eastbound lane will be closed while the westbound lane will remain open and be used to alternate traffic. Flagmen will be on site to assist with traffic control. Tuesday, July 12, will be used as a rain date if necessary. 

(South Knoxville) Chapman Highway Intermittent Lane Closures [July 11 – October 2016] – KUB crews will implement intermittent lane closures on Chapman Highway between Stone Road and East Ford Valley Road as necessary to perform upgrades on the electric distribution system in the area. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday, starting on Monday, July 11, and lasting through October 31, 2016 (weather permitting). Crews will be working in the curbside lanes in both directions, with the majority of work occurring in the northbound lanes. Lane closures will be implemented in the immediate work zone and not on this entire span of Chapman Highway at one time. 

Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction. Appropriate traffic control measures will be in place at each location to assist motorists traveling in these areas. Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use caution and expect temporary delays in these areas. More information on this and other KUB construction projects can be found at www.kub.org.
