Knox to Oak Ridge Greenway Plan

The TPO and Great Smoky Mountains Regional Greenway Council have created plans for linking greenway trails in Knox County, Knoxville and Oak Ridge.

This greenway planning has been done in two phases. The first phase looked at connections among three existing greenways:

Pellissippi Corridor to Turkey Creek

Based on public feedback received during the Knox to Oak Ridge planning process, we decided to create a small additional study to find the best greenway route from the Pellissippi Parkway corridor to Turkey Creek Greenway.

A high-resolution version of the conceptual plan is available here. The full plan document is broken into sections below for easier download.

Based on comments we received from our online surveys, there is a common question about why we've studied these greenway linkages and not others. We realize that there's a desire for greenway connections all over the Knoxville Region.

The geography of these planning studies was determined by the Great Smoky Mountains Regional Greenway Council, which co-sponsored the study, and was approved by the TPO. The Council's focus is on making regional connections, so it is funding studies to link different cities and counties. Residents who want to know more about plans to link greenways within their communities are encouraged to contact their local government.

These plans were a partnership of the Great Smoky Mountains Regional Greenway Council and Knoxville Regional TPO, along with Knox County, the City of Oak Ridge, the City of Knoxville, the Town of Farragut, Oak Ridge National Lab and the TTCDA. If you have any questions, please contact Ellen Zavisca with the TPO at ellen.zavisca@knoxtrans.org or Shauna Godlevsky at Knox County at shauna.godlevsky@knoxcounty.org.
