April 25, 2007 - There is a potential
for heavier than normal rush hour traffic in the area around the
Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum and the Knoxville Convention
Center due to the "Get Motivated Seminars" scheduled for
8 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, April 26.
The "Get Motivated Seminars" is expected to draw between
7,000 to 10,000 people to the coliseum, with an overflow group at
the convention center.
That means rush hour traffic - both morning and evening - may be
heavier than usual particularly on Hall of Fame Drive, East Hill
Avenue and Howard Baker Jr. Avenue.
HEAVY TRAFFIC TIMES:
between 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. and between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
HEAVY TRAFFIC LOCATIONS:
Hall of Fame Drive, Howard Baker Jr. Avenue and E. Hill Avenue
around the Knoxville Coliseum and Henley Street near the convention
Drivers who use those streets to access downtown Knoxville or the
University of Tennessee area may want to consider an alternate route.
