Section of Greenway Closed Along Melton Lake Drive

May 23, 2017

A section of Melton Lake Greenway on either side of the UT-Battelle rowing tower, located on Melton Lake Drive between Emory Valley Road and Union Valley Road, will be closed on weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, May 23, 2017. The closure is necessary to allow the Public Works Department to paint the tower.

The greenway will be open all day on the weekends and will reopen at 4:00 p.m. during the week. The closure is expected to last for approximately three weeks, provided there are no delays due to the weather or any other unforeseen circumstances.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience while we complete this project.

Questions can be directed to the Public Works information line at (865) 425-1875 or email
