[UPDATE: August 28 – The City of Kingsport is continuing to make critical wastewater system repairs to the West Kingsport Pump Station and force main on Netherland Inn Road. Part of the nearly $6 million project is to excavate, install and backfill a new, larger force main from the pump station at the Ridgefields Bridge to the Waste Water Treatment Plant on Industry Drive.  Excavation of the new force main has been delayed due to heavy formations of rock being encountered along the path but has progressed to the point that Stage 1 is completed.  Stage 2 of the Greenbelt closure near Boatyard Riverfront Park is described below and shown visually on the picture below.

Stage 1:  Completed.

Stage 2: Closure of the Greenbelt northern path to all foot and bike traffic from just west of the foot bridge over Dry Hollow to the Ridgefield Bridge from today until completed.  During this time the Greenbelt, via the southern path at Boatyard Riverfront Park, will be fully open for east to west travel.

Automobile access to the parking area at Boatyard Riverfront Park will remain open throughout Stage 2, except when the contractor is actually installing the force main across the entrance (1-2 days max if heavy rock formation is not present). There may also be a temporary closure of the playground area at the park when the contractor nears that location if they are still encountering heavy rock requiring hammering with their heavy equipment.]
