Downtown drivers who use Clinch Avenue between Locust Street and Henley Street will need to find an alternate route Tuesday. The Knoxville Utilities Board has closed that portion of the street to make water main repairs.
The utility company expects the closure to last until 2:00 p.m. Tuesday.
In a press release, a KUB spokesman says one lane of Clinch may be opened as the repairs progress.
KUB is urging downtown drivers to use extra caution around the construction zones.
