The overpass is now in place and the next bit of work will be to install the railings. Hopefully sometime in the next few weeks this new access can be opened on nights and weekends. The roof and other enhancements will continue to be under construction.
The temporary stairway has reopened and the elevator is generally back in operation. Foundation work in the area is still ongoing so periodic closures of the elevator area are still likely.
Thanks to PBA for providing the pictures below:
S. Central Street remains closed during work hours while the last pieces of precast concrete are placed. This work should be completed this week or early next week. Storm drains will be installed along S. Central Street upon completion of this work which will necessitate a continued lane closure most of next week. Additionally, breaking down the crane for removal will also likely take a couple of days.
Thanks for your interest in the State Street Garage Expansion Project and in Downtown Knoxville.
