West Walnut project continues, includes overnight work

Underground infrastructure work is continuing in the West Walnut Street area. Overnight work on West Watauga Avenue at the intersection of West State of Franklin and the intersection of West Walnut Street will begin Sunday (Dec. 12) at 7 p.m. and end Monday (Dec. 13) at 7 a.m.

This work will disrupt traffic flow intermittently along West Watauga Avenue and those intersections and will require a lane closure on West State of Franklin Road.

Other infrastructure work will continue to impact the following streets during the day through the week of Dec. 13:

  • Ashe Street – intermittent closures
  • West Watauga Avenue– intermittent closures/lane shifts

Drivers who cannot avoid these areas should expect delays, use caution in the construction zone, and observe posted speed limits for their safety and the safety of workers.

This work is part of the City of Johnson City’s West Walnut Street Redevelopment Project. Additional information about the proposed redevelopment in this area as well as updates on construction can be found on the City’s website,
