The third and final phase of the Volunteer Boulevard streetscape project—from Peyton Manning Pass to Cumberland Avenue—will begin Monday, February 5.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with no street parking available throughout the duration of the project. Lanes will shift as portions of the project area are completed.
A notice to the campus will be distributed when significant changes occur in the traffic pattern.
We encourage all pedestrians to be aware of their surroundings and not to enter any portion of the construction zone. Perimeter fencing and signage will be in place to direct pedestrians around the construction areas.
Vehicles will not be allowed to load or unload within the project area. A map with information about appropriate areas for loading and unloading can be found here.
T bus and KAT trolley service on Volunteer Boulevard near the Johnson-Ward pedestrian walkway, as well as the Hill route on Volunteer Boulevard at Cumberland Avenue, will remain open. The KAT trolley stop on westbound Volunteer Boulevard just before Peyton Manning Pass will be relocated slightly west to stay outside of the construction area.
Those who park in the McClung Garage (G1 and G2) will continue to have access to the garage throughout the duration of the project.
During the summer months, a portion of Volunteer Boulevard will be closed to traffic as work is completed on the crossing area that connects the pedestrian walkway to the pedestrian bridge.
The project is set to be substantially completed by the start of the fall 2018 semester.
