KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – The Broadway Viaduct will be closed for nearly three years as a new bridge is built to replace the 92-year-old viaduct.
That means an average of more than 10,000 vehicles a day will have to a different route until August 2022.
Broadway is closed from the intersection of Oak Avenue, Worlds Fair Park, and Jackson Avenue to just north of the Depot Avenue intersection, the Tennessee Department of Transportation said. Depot Avenue will also be closed.
The closure began Sunday, Nov. 3.
Additional lane closures on local streets may also be necessary as crews move to different parts of the project, according to TDOT.
Here is a map of how to get around the construction site.
