The City of Sevierville announces the temporary closure of several downtown streets on Sunday, May 24 between approximately 7:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The closures are necessary to facilitate the Smoky Mountain Thunder Memorial Motorcycle Ride. Due to the Streetscape project construction downtown, closures will likely last longer than past events.
The Sevierville Police Department (SPD) is urging parents and pet owners to be cognizant of the potential danger of leaving their children or pets in vehicles during warm weather.
As the Sevierville Downtown Streetscape project continues, a section of Court Avenue will be closed for construction beginning Tuesday, May 12, 2020.
Court Avenue, between Bruce Street and Commerce Street will be closed to all traffic. An estimated reopening date is not available at this time. To learn more about the Sevierville Downtown Streetscape project and get current information, please visit www.downtownstreetscape.com.
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. National Peace Officers Memorial Day, established to honor and remember our fallen law enforcement officers, is one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses and residents are to fly their U.S. flags at half-staff.
