The Karns Connector project has been developed to alleviate traffic concerns in the Karns Community, specifically Byington Beaver Ridge Road. For example, the proposed project will more efficiently and safely move traffic north and south through the community by avoiding a narrow one lane railroad underpass. In addition, it will also provide for a more direct connection between Oak Ridge Highway and Pellissippi Parkway. Knox County hopes to acquire the rights-of-way in the Fall of 2013 and begin construction in Summer 2014 with an 18 month timeline for completion.
Knox County wants to know your thoughts concerning the project. You may submit your comments via mail, phone, fax, or email as noted below.Jim Snowen, P.E.
