7/25/18 Moving day for Appalachian Service Project House

Two house shells constructed by the Appalachian Service Project at the Bristol Motor Speedway will be moved to their final locations at 910 Hill Street and 1107 Anderson Street on two different days during the week of July 30 through August 2, 2018. In accordance with the TDOT-issued oversize haul permit, these oversize loads 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 the Hill Street/Holston Avenue traffic signal.  The house shell going to 910 Hill Street will turn at Hill Street and go west to its final location; the house shell going to 1107 Anderson Street will continue north on Volunteer Parkway and turn left to go west on Anderson Street to its final location.  Please note that the house shell going to 1107 Anderson Street will be traveling the wrong way along this one-way eastbound street.  Once the house shells arrive at their final locations, the 900 block and 1100 block of Anderson Street will continue to be closed until the respective house shell is backed up onto its foundation.

These loads are 26 feet wide and thus will considerably impact traffic all along this route. It is planned to move the house shell to 910 Hill Street on Monday, July 30, 2018, and the house shell to 1107 Anderson Street on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.  If either move is delayed by inclement weather or a mechanical issue, that house move will be delayed until Wednesday, August 1, or Thursday, August 2, 2018.

No parking will be allowed on the pavement in the 800 and 900 blocks of Hill Street the day that the house shell moves to 910 Hill Street; no parking will be allowed on the pavement in the 900, 1000, or 1100 blocks of Anderson Street on the day that the house shell moves to 1107 Anderson Street.  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 Hill Street or Anderson Street on 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.

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