Please be advised that the Tennessee Department of Transportation will soon begin construction at the intersection of Volunteer Parkway and Cox Street in central Bristol. This construction work will involve the installation of a traffic signal and modifications to the Volunteer Parkway left-turn lanes north and south of Cox Street.
The travel lanes on Volunteer Parkway will be shifted so that two lanes of traffic will continue to flow in each direction; but there will be no shoulders in either direction of Volunteer Parkway while the work zone is in place.
Some preliminary work may take place before the April 13-16, 2018, Race Weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway; but the significant work will begin right after the April Race Weekend. The project is scheduled to be completed by July 1, 2018.
Questions should be directed to David Metzger, Traffic Engineer, at (423) 989-5522 or at [email protected].
