The City's professional design consultants, Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. and Toole Design Group will be hosting the second public meeting for the Downtown Circulation and Mobility Plan for Downtown Knoxville. They will review recommendations and allow the public an opportunity to offer comments.
The plan will develop multimodal improvement strategies that will prioritize certain corridors within the CBID and assess the following:
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
Determine a preferred combination of one-way and two-way streets for both north-south and east-west movements in downtown.
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
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. Plan is expected to be complete by September 2014
