KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The University of Tennessee wants to take control of city-owned streets that run through the Knoxville campus.

UT already owns some streets on campus.

The proposal to take over nearly a dozen more goes before the Board of Trustees during their June meeting.

If the trustees approve, the plan goes to the State Building Commission then the Knoxville Metropolitan Planning Commission.

The university would be able to close or change campus streets as desired, including landscaping additions and more bicycle lanes.
