JWP Closes Sunday, Traffic Detoured to Hall of Fame Drive

Knoxville (WVLT) - Drivers getting out and about in Downtown Knoxville are likely breathing a sigh of relief since the Hall Of Fame Drive opened Thursday.

But on Sunday the James White Parkway is set to close as part of TDOT's next phase of SmartFix40.

The new Hall of Fame Drive extension makes it easier for drivers from the east to go downtown.

The connector will also provide access to the area for drivers who usually take James White Parkway.
