New traffic pattern on Volunteer Parkway near downtown

April 28, 2014

Work will be completed soon on a new traffic pattern on southbound Volunteer Parkway in and near downtown Bristol. On southbound Volunteer Parkway between State Street and Melrose Street, the far right third through lane up against the right curb will be eliminated. It will be marked as a shoulder between intersections, and be marked as a right-turn at the street intersections. Drivers are encouraged to be alert to this new travel pattern, which will be in effect as the pavement markings and signs are changed. For more information, please contact David Metzger, Traffic Engineer, at 423-989-5522.
