Knoxville Streetscape Pre-Construction Meeting; Start Date Is March 3

Knoxville City staff, Water Works and Reclamation, and representatives from TK Concrete and Hawkeye Paving held a Streetscape pre-construction meeting Thursday morning. Assistant City Manager Dylan Feik led the meeting, and it was determined that the plan is to begin with safety meetings this coming Monday, March 3, and then the detours will be set for work to begin on the east end of Robinson Street, near Third. The paving crew said initially underground pipe work will be done until the weather is warm enough to work on concrete, as the frost, which is thought to be approximately 4 feet deep, is gone, at which time the work on pavement on Second Street can begin.
