New Construction in Maryville Could Cause Problems

Maryville, Blount County (WVLT) - One week from Monday, you can expect a lot of traffic confusion in Maryville.

That's because a portion of Broadway will shut down, causing drivers to look for alternate routes around the Five Point in the city.

Officials say a section of East Broadway could be closed for at least 30 days.

Construction is expected to wrap up on June 30th.

And the end result will connect the intersections of Broadway, East Harper and Everett High Road.

    For $80,000, they could have just replaced the signal light with one that could change to a blinking red light late at night. Instead they are spending a lot more money to do a round about that may not work very well during the busy time of day. The entrances are going to be too close together to allow you to be able to merge into the traffic. Plus they are taking a lot of space from the business places. The restaurant barely had enought parking spaces before, and now they are taking several of them. All this because some people complained about having to set at a red light after midnight.
