Traffic Signal Timing Changes Starting Next Week

Posted 04-13-18.

The City of Sevierville and contractors will be retiming traffic signals throughout the City beginning next week. The signal retiming is part of a project to move the City to a traffic responsive system, wherein traffic signals communicate in real-time to respond to traffic levels, resulting in increased traffic flow efficiency.

Motorists should be alert for changes in current timing and signal phases starting next week. The retiming phase of the project is expected to take several weeks to complete, so you may not see changes in your normal travel immediately.

The project is 100% federally-funded and includes the entire Highway 66 corridor, Dolly Parton Parkway, Main Street, the Parkway into Pigeon Forge, and Veterans Boulevard into Pigeon Forge.

The City of Sevierville Police Department announces that Chief Joe Manning from Bluffton, South Carolina has been named as the new Chief of Police. He replaces former SPD Chief Don Myers, who retired March 30 after thirty-nine years of service to the City.

Chief Manning is a career law enforcement officer who spent twenty-nine years at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida before joining the Bluffton, South Carolina Police Department in 2013 as Deputy Chief, and ultimately rising to Chief of Police.

“My family and I have been visiting Sevierville for the past twenty-years and we have good friends in the area,” Chief Manning said. “I am honored to have been chosen as Sevierville’s next chief and am looking forward to meeting and working with the citizens of this great community.”

“Chief Manning’s extensive and diverse law enforcement experience, which includes being chief at a city with similar tourism challenges, will serve our Police Department and community well,” said City Administrator Russell Treadway. “We’re fortunate to have him as our new chief.”

Chief Manning is expected to begin working at the City on or about May 14.
