Weather permitting, the New Construction of Church Circle project will start today. No streets will be closed, but barricades will be placed around the center of the circle.

Kingsport’s historic church circle is undergoing a major renovation and upgrade. The upgrades will fix longstanding issues with the crumbling edges of the circle, irrigation and maintenance of the landscaping, and enhance the traditional events held in the heart of the city. In connection with adjacent churches, Downtown Kingsport Association, local architects and engineers, the new design is historically appropriate to our nationally recognized circle and compliments the nearby buildings. It will feature professionally selected plantings and a new tree that reflect the importance of the circle to our community.

GRC Construction will be completing this project for the city.

Motorists are asked to use extra caution when traveling through this area. If possible, motorists should search for an alternate route to avoid any congestion.

We appreciate your patience during this improvement process.
