In addition, implementing this project is considered necessary to serve the existing and future traffic demands on this section of the State Route 62. The section of existing Western Avenue that is not part of the reconstruction of the new roadway will remain open to traffic. This section will revert to the City of Knoxville for maintenance.
Other benefits of the proposed action include:
