The City of Kingsport will be performing sanitary sewer extensions in the TriCities Crossing area over the next seven months. The current focused area of this work is in the vicinity of the Mitchell Road and Fordtown Road intersection. Merkel Bros. Construction will be the contractor performing this work for the city.

The construction zones will be marked by signs and directed by flaggers when required. Drivers are asked to use caution in the area during this time. If you have questions, please contact Hank Clabaugh with the City of Kingsport Engineering Division at 229-9324.

Thanks for your cooperation during this improvement process.

Beginning on Monday, October 14, city crews will be performing daily maintenance activities on the sanitary sewer and stormwater drainage systems along Fairview Avenue between Stone Drive and Allen Drive.  This scheduled work is being planned to coincide with Kingsport City School’s Fall Break in order to minimize traffic impacts in this area.

Beginning at 8:00 am each morning, one-block sections of Fairview Avenue will be closed to thru-traffic in order for our crews to safely perform work in that area.  Two-way traffic will be restored each day by 4:30 pm.  We anticipate all work to be completed by Friday, October 18.  Motorists are encouraged to utilize the marked detour routes until this work is completed.

We urge motorists to use extreme caution while traveling in this area and to obey all Road Closed signs.

If you have any questions, please call (423) 229-9454.
