Motorists traveling in Knox County should be aware of upcoming traffic changes along Alcoa Highway in Knox County.


Beginning on Thursday, July 8, the southbound ramp on Alcoa Highway to Montlake Drive will be opened. This will allow motorists direct access to the round-a-bout at Montlake Drive. Motorists will also be able to access Quiet Side Lane (previously Montlake Court), Woodson Drive, Barber Hill Drive and Mt. Vernon Drive, as well as businesses along Alcoa Highway northbound.


This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions.  Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area as workers will be present.
