KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will close the eastbound lane of Andy Holt Avenue between Volunteer Boulevard and Phillip Fulmer Way on Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11, as part of the current phase of renovations to Neyland Stadium.
The westbound lane of Andy Holt Avenue next to the University Center and the Haslam Business Building will remain open to one-way traffic from Phillip Fulmer Way. Motorists wishing to turn east on Andy Holt will be detoured north on Volunteer Boulevard, then east on Cumberland Avenue, then south on Phillip Fulmer Way.
Middle Way Drive in front of the Alumni Memorial Building will be open during the construction. Phillip Fulmer Way in front of the KAT bus transfer station and Neyland Stadium remain closed until just before the start of classes this fall.
Staff Lot 9 will be accessible through the entrance at Peyton Manning Pass.
Construction crews will close the section of the road to make infrastructure improvements to the water and sewer lines serving the stadium.
Public events taking place on April 10 and 11 at Tom Black Track, Lindsay Nelson Stadium, Thompson-Boling Arena, the University Center and the Alumni Memorial Building may cause extra delays for motorists. However, pedestrian access to events held in these facilities will be available. UT Police Department officers will be assisting with traffic control.
The closed section of Andy Holt Avenue is expected to reopen on Monday, April 12.
