Knoxville's Broadway Viaduct to reopen after three years

KNoxville Broadway Viaduct

After three years, the $17 million Knoxville Broadway Viaduct reopened to traffic on Aug. 31, 2020. The bridge serves as a critical connection between North and South Knoxville and is used by around 10,000 vehicles per day. The new bridge replaces a previous structure originally built in 1927. The new bridge has two lanes with a dedicated center turn lane, sidewalks, bike lanes, and pedestrian access. Lighting and fencing will also be installed on the bridge.
