The Brown School Road safety project TDOT began in August has been delayed due to an issue with AT&T utilities that was not discovered until construction began. AT&T has to relocate underground fiber optic conduit to a new fiber optic duct bank. This issue has delayed the project at least three months. Once the AT&T work is complete, the signal installation will take two months - and paving and finishing work could take an additional two months. Factoring in weather delays, the project may be extended into summer 2019.
The original completion target was December 31.

The City has contracted with Whaley Construction, LLC to complete a sidewalk and stormwater improvement project on South Cedar Street from Ray Avenue to Mountain View Avenue. Crews will tentatively begin mobilizing equipment at the site location early next week.
South Cedar Street, which connects Maryville Junior High and Maryville High School, lacked sidewalks on both sides of the road in certain areas and some of the existing sidewalks were substandard. Additionally, the stormwater drainage system in the area was in need of repair.
Engineering and Public Works’ street construction crews have recently been working on the section of South Cedar Street between Ray Avenue and Karrow Street to improve walkability and stormwater drainage, however the remaining unfinished sections had to be contracted out.
The current project includes widened sidewalks, construction of two retaining walls, and new stormwater drainage. Once the project is complete, this and the already completed section of South Cedar from Karrow Street to Ray Avenue will be resurfaced.
City Engineer Kevin Stoltenberg said, “This project has already improved walkability and drainage and has been received extremely well. While the next phase of the project will create some inconveniences, we believe residents and people who use the sidewalks will be very pleased with the end result.”
For more information, please call the department of Engineering and Public Works (865) 273-3302.
