Work on one section of Lyons View Pike has been completed, but road closures remain on the section now under construction.
According to KUB, workers for its contractor, Charles Blalock and Sons, have finished work in Zone 1 on the east end of Lyons View Pike, between Kingston Pike and Colony Way. That section of the road has been reopened to traffic, and the barricades have been removed at Arrowhead Trail and Colony Way intersections.
Now work has begun in Zone 2, which spans from just west of Colony Way to the area in front of Cherokee Country Club. Lyons View Pike remains closed to through traffic west of Colony Way.
You can still reach Cherokee Country Club from the west end of Lyons View Pike, from Northshore Drive, though traffic control officers remain in place at barricades located on the east and west ends of Lyons View Pike. Only local traffic is permitted through.
The project is expected to be completed in November 2013, before Thanksgiving.
