Downtown Circulation and Mobility Plan [PDF]

The City's professional design consultants, Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. and Toole Design Group are developing a Downtown Circulation and Mobility Plan for Downtown Knoxville. The project limits for this plan are W Depot Ave to the north, TN River to the south, Hall of Fame to the east, and 11th St to the west.

The plan will develop multimodal improvement strategies that will prioritize certain corridors within the CBID that promote the following:

  • Movement of vehicles through downtown and/or to selected destinations downtown
  • Transit service within and through downtown
  • Bicycle access through downtown and/or to selected destinations downtown
  • Adequate on-street parking at or near land uses that rely on on-street parking
  • Pedestrian connectivity within the CBID and also pedestrian connectivity with residential areas adjacent to downtown
  • Determining a preferred combination of one-way and two-way streets for both north-south and east-west movements in downtown.
  • The Gay St corridor will be assessed to determine: the preferred combination of on-street parking versus auxiliary turn lanes, ways to enhance traffic signs and pavement markings that direct motorists, and preferred approach to improving signalization along the corridor

    There will be two public meetings. During this public meeting, the consultants will review the background of the study and the existing/planned future conditions for the downtown area. We'll discuss high-level strategies and recommendations and public comments will be solicited during this meeting. The second public meeting (at a later date-to be determined) will present the findings of the draft plan.

    Plan is expected to be complete by September 2014
