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.
