Section of Neyland Greenway Closed near Kuwahee Wastewater Treatment Plant

Posted: 07/28/2021
KUB and its contractor will close the section of the Neyland Greenway between Lake Loudoun Boulevard and Third Creek starting Monday, August 2, and lasting continuously through October 2021, to facilitate safe conditions as work is performed at the Kuwahee Wastewater Treatment Plant on the north bank of the Tennessee River. 

A detour route around the closed section of the Neyland Greenway will be open along the shoulder area on the north side of Neyland Drive (see attached map) between Lake Loudoun Boulevard and Joan Cronan Way to the Kuwahee Greenway. Portable barriers will be set up to avoid conflicts with vehicle traffic on Neyland Drive. 

To familiarize greenway users with the upcoming changes, signage will be placed at key locations along the detour route, and on the Third Creek and Neyland Greenways. 

The impacted section of greenway will be closed continuously throughout the duration of the work. KUB asks greenway users to please respect the signage and barricades in place, and to avoid this section of greenway due to ongoing excavation, as well as the presence of construction equipment, materials, vehicles, and workers.

All lanes of vehicle traffic will remain open on Neyland Drive.
