In response to the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s ongoing Concord Road Expansion project, First Utility District is planning what is estimated to be a maximum 12-day nighttime road closure at the intersection of Turkey Creek and Concord roads, which began Monday evening, Oct. 7.
The utility is working to install and connect a new water main at Turkey Creek Road, just west of Concord Road, and the nightly work and closure will occur from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., daily through no later than Friday, Oct. 18, according to Bruce Giles, FUD general manager, as told by Chloe Pool, Communications manager for FUD.
A detour will be posted for motorists affected by this Farragut closure. “We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate the patience of those affected during this work,” Pool said.
It is just the latest phase of the ongoing utility relocation in connection with the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s Concord Road expansion project, which began earlier this year.
The project ultimately will result in the relocation of more than one mile of 6-inch, 8-inch, 12-inch and 20-inch water mains, as well as multiple large-diameter gravity sewer and force main sewer liner relocations.
FUD’s work began in June 2018, and will occur intermittently through Summer 2020 as road work progresses.
