KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Church Avenue will get a makeover downtown beginning Monday.

The road is scheduled to undergo a massive resurfacing project through the heart of town, covering just under a half mile of roadway.

It will be a two phase project.

The area that will be affected is from the James White Parkway to Henley Street.

The first phase focuses on the stretch from the viaduct to Gay Street that's about a tenth of a mile.

This phase is expected to take three to four days to complete. The section will be closed to through traffic, but there will be access between State Street and Gay Street.

Phase two covers the area from Gay Street to Henley Street.

It's scheduled to begin on Saturday, Nov. 17, and if all goes well, phase two will be complete the following evening.

Lanes through the area will be closed on a rotating basis.
