Greenbelt Section Closed Until October

After consideration, the Kingsport Greenbelt section located between Scott Adams Skate Park and Industry Drive will remain closed until the first week in October. The current work being done near the wastewater treatment plant will finish this week.

The project work being completed behind Action Athletics is in close proximity to the Greenbelt. There is deep excavation work taking place so keeping the section closed is safest for all residents. For the safety of the public, no pedestrian or bike traffic is allowed in and around the construction area.

This project section will be completed by the first week in October. The Greenbelt will reopen as soon as the city can ensure everyone’s safety.

If you have any questions, please contact Chad Austin with the City of Kingsport Water Services Division at 423-224-2509 or chadaustin@kingsporttn.gov. Thanks for your patience and cooperation during this improvement process.
