7/19/18 Moving day for Appalachian Service Project House Bristol Motor Speedway to 2633 Anderson Str

On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, a house shell constructed by the Appalachian Service Project at the Bristol Motor Speedway will be moved to its final location at 2633 Anderson Street (west of Spring Drive). In accordance with the TDOT-issued oversize haul permit, this oversize load will depart the Speedway Parking facility of Bristol Motor Speedway at 501 White Top Road at 6:30 p.m. and proceed under police escort to Highway 394; west on Highway 394 to the Highway 11E interchange; north on Highway 11E and Volunteer Parkway to Windsor Avenue; then west on Windsor Avenue to 17th Street; then north on 17th Street to Broad Street; then west on Broad Street to Spring Drive; then south on Spring Drive to Anderson Street; then west on Anderson Street to the final house site at 2633 Anderson Street.  Once the house shell arrives at its final site, Anderson Street west of Spring Drive (the dead-end block) will be closed until the house shell is backed up onto its foundation.

This load is 26 feet wide and thus will considerably impact traffic all along this route. On-street parking on Windsor Avenue east of 17th Street can remain where it is permitted at present, but may be delayed in arriving and departing as the house shell travels along this roadway.

No parking will be allowed on the pavement or shoulders on 17th Street, Broad Street, Spring Drive, or Anderson Street on the sections listed above.  These streets will be posted in advance as no-parking, tow-away zones on both sides, and towing enforcement will begin at 5:00 p.m. that day.  Vehicles parked on these street sections will be towed.  Motorists are requested to not park along these sections of 17th Street, Broad Street, Spring Drive, and Anderson Street that day.

Motorists are cautioned that this oversize load will cause considerable travel delays along this route and to take this into account when planning to travel along these roadways.

If there is some weather or mechanical issue that prevents this house shell from being transported on July 24, the move will be rescheduled to the rain date of Wednesday, July 25, 2018, with the same daily time frame and parking restrictions as listed for July 24 above.

Questions concerning this oversize load move should be directed to David Metzger, Traffic Engineer, at (423) 989-5522.
