The City of Knoxville will hold an interactive open house on Aug. 14 that focuses on potential upgrades for the North Broadway Corridor from Glenwood Avenue to McCroskey Avenue.
The public is invited to drop in from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and recommend ideas to make North Broadway more inviting and accessible to all users.
Additionally, a study will be completed by February 2020 that will look at alternative options for the Hall of Fame Drive intersection and North Broadway up to Cecil Avenue. The study will determine a better functioning roadway for pedestrians, motor vehicles and bicyclists.
“This study will determine alternative designs for the Hall of Fame intersection for all modes of transportation to travel in a more efficient and safe manner,” said Jon Livengood, the City’s Alternative Transportation Engineer.
“The existing intersection works for people who are coming from the north, but those who are approaching from the south have no options to get on Hall of Fame or get off and then proceed southbound on Broadway. It’s also extremely uncomfortable to travel by foot or bicycle. We will determine a context sensitive design that functions well and is no longer a barrier that divides the surrounding neighborhoods.”
Anyone needing a disability accommodation to attend the open house should contact ADA Coordinator Stephanie Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org or 865-215-2034. For an English interpreter, contact Title VI Coordinator Tatia M. Harris at 865-215-2831.
