The City of Kingsport has a downtown project nearly complete – the Commerce and New Street bulb out project. With the project starting to finish up, there will be a permanent change to the traffic pattern at this intersection starting Monday, April 13.

Currently, the traffic on Commerce Street stops while traffic traveling on New Street does not. The new traffic pattern will be a 4-way stop at this intersection and signage will be installed and ready for April 13.

Motorist should use caution when traveling through this area until the new traffic pattern is learned and established.
