Utility Construction to Close Section of Third Creek Greenway Near Tyson Park

Posted: 06/05/2019
KUB and its contractor will close a short section of the Third Creek Greenway between the Tyson Park west entrance/exit near S. Concord Street and the trail split just east of Safety City starting Monday, June 17, and lasting continuously through early July 2019 (weather permitting) as part of a wastewater collection system pipeline and manhole rehabilitation project in this area.

A detour route around the closed section of the Third Creek Greenway will be set up via Concord Street and Painter Avenue (see map image below).

KUB Third Creek Greenway Closure

To familiarize greenway users with the upcoming changes, signs will be placed at several locations east and west of the closed section of Third Creek Greenway approximately one week before the closure is implemented. KUB and City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation asks trail users to please respect the signs and barricades, and to avoid using the closed section of greenway due to ongoing excavation and the presence of construction equipment, materials, vehicles, and workers.

Customers with questions or concerns can call 865-558-2331 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.
