Knoxville (WVLT) -- Night owls near the University of Tennessee's campus may have some traffic headaches to deal with on Wednesday.

From 10:00 PM through 6:00 AM Thursday, both westbound lanes of Cumberland Avenue near the 22nd Street intersection will be closed as KUB makes some sewer system upgrades.

During that time, Cumberland Avenue will be reduced to one lane traveling in either direction.

The area will be marked off with barricades and signs during the work.

The sewer upgrades are a part of Pace 10, KUB's decade long program to improve the city's waste water system, making it more environmentally friendly.
