Chapman Highway Community Workshop Summary

More than 130 people were in attendance at South Doyle Middle School on April 16 for the second community workshop on the Chapman Highway Implementation Plan. Stations were set up throughout the room showing five different sections of the roadway to allow community members to get an in depth look and provide specific feedback on each. 

Staff from the City of Knoxville and Knoxville-Knox County Planning have been studying the 6.2-mile stretch of Chapman Highway in the city limits between the Henley Bridge and Gov. John Sevier Highway since last summer. The goals of this plan are to prioritize safety and implement improvement projects along this stretch of road.At Tuesday’s meeting, roughly 50 projects were proposed, and staff is seeking help in deciding which ones should be completed first. Included in the proposed projects are improved intersection alignments, the addition of dedicated turn lanes, the addition of landscaped medians, and increased bicycle and transit facilities.

The report for this study will be finalized this summer. TDOT has committed $45 million to improvements along the Chapman Highway corridor from the Henley Bridge to Seymour. Though TDOT will go through their own process to identify which projects will ultimately be implemented, they will be able to use this local analysis and community input to inform their decisions.

More information about the plan is available on the project webpage. A survey is also available for anyone who was unable to attend the community workshop.
