A closed portion of a busy Knoxville street is reopening Friday night.
Western Avenue has been closed between Keith and Richmond Avenues for the past few weeks while a KUB contractor works on improvements to the wastewater system.
The road will reopen Friday at midnight, but some construction work will continue through next week. One land of the road will be closed in each direction from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting Saturday.
The work is expected to completely wrap up on Thursday.
