KUB Partial Closure of Second Creek & Neyland Greenways through End of Sept. 2016

Posted: 07/06/2016
A small section of the Second Creek and Neyland Greenways will be closed as Knoxville Utilities Board and its contractor complete upgrades to the wastewater collection system as part of the Century II program.

The closure will begin Thursday, July 7, and is expected to last through the end of September 2016.

The closed section will extend from the Neyland Greenway pedestrian bridge south along the parking area to where the greenways intersect Neyland Drive. Greenway users will be detoured via the Neyland Greenway connector underneath Neyland Drive to access either side of the greenway.   

In addition to this closure, greenway users should be advised of ongoing utility work in the area along side Second Creek between Cumberland Avenue and Neyland Drive. This will include the narrowing of the footpath to allow for equipment set up and operation. Greenway users should use caution when in this area. University of Tennessee parking lots C-18 (accessible via Cumberland Avenue) and C-15 (accessible via Neyland Drive) will remain open during this project. 

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.
