Motorists traveling in Knox County should be aware of upcoming construction that will affect traffic along North Broadway at the I-640 West Interchange.

On Friday, March 1, 2019, the new entrance ramp from southbound Broadway to I-640 West will be opened to traffic.  This traffic switch will open the widened section of southbound Broadway that adds a new designated ramp lane to I-640 West. The added lane will separate the I-640 Westbound movement from southbound Broadway through movement by a barrier wall.

On Saturday, March 2, 2019, the new entrance ramp from northbound Broadway to I-640 West will be opened. This new loop entrance provides northbound Broadway access to I-640 West and eliminates the existing left turn movement. Motorists traveling north on Broadway should use the newly opened right lane to access the loop ramp to I-640 West.

This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area as workers will be present.
