KINGSPORT — Road work related to the Carousel Project at the Farmers Market, as well as a Clinchfield Street reconfiguration project to improve turning movements on Clinchfield and increase safety for those choosing mobility alternatives such as bicycles, will begin on Monday.
Overall, the entire project is estimated to take 60 days for the intersection work and 90 days to complete the entire project.
The two-part project involves the installation of a new signal and redesign of the entrance to Food City at the intersection of Press Street and Clinchfield.
During construction of the intersection tie in, one lane of Clinchfield entering the downtown area will be closed approaching Press Street.
The second part of the project will restripe Clinchfield from Center Street to Stone Drive, removing one travel lane while adding a continuous center turn lane and bicycle lanes on each side of the street.
