| Trucks detoured from Papermill
2, 2004 - Eastbound trucks will be detoured away from Papermill
Road beginning Tuesday, July 6.
The detour is in response to the pipe failure at Papermill Plaza,
and concerns about the damage that failure may be causing to the pipe
system underneath Papermill Drive. The pipe system drains storm water.
Detour signs will be posted routing truck traffic away from Papermill
Drive onto Kingston Pike and returning to Papermill Drive at Northshore
As a precautionary measure, the city earlier closed the outside eastbound
lane to all traffic because of a void, or hole, developing in the
embankment immediately south of, and adjacent to, Papermill Drive.
This void has caused some minor damage to the outside eastbound lane.
