The Sevierville Downtown Streetscape Project continues to progress! Starting Monday, August 19, the intersection of Bruce Street and Court Avenue will be closed for approximately 6 weeks.
All of downtown Sevierville will be accessible from Bruce Street and Court Avenue, but no thru traffic will be able to utilize the intersection of these roads. Commerce Street can still be used to get from the north end of Court Avenue to West Bruce Street.
The Sevier County Clerk's Office drive-thru window will be accessible via Forks of the River Parkway.
All important project information is available at https://www.downtownstreetscape.com. And to get regular updates on road closures, text "SEVIERVILLE" to 313131.
As the Downtown Streetscapes project continues in downtown Sevierville, the Framers Market is moving to the Municipal Complex for the convenience of our residents.

The Sevierville Police Department has scheduled a Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class for women on October 25 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and October 26 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Sevierville Police Department.
The class is free of charge and is open to all interested women. The purpose of the class is to develop and enhance self-defense options, so they may become viable considerations to a woman if she is attacked.
The Sevierville Police Department is conducting a FREE child car safety seat inspection event Saturday, August 17 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Dairy Queen, 1179 Dolly Parton Parkway.
A certified SPD technician will perform the free safety check and answer any questions you may have. The City of Sevierville is committed to helping parents and caregivers make sure their children ride as safely as possible - every trip, every time.
Parents can also have their safety seats checked at the Sevierville Police (865-453-5506) and Fire (865-453-9276) Departments throughout the year. Please call ahead and schedule an appointment.
The end of summer is traditionally marked by the Labor Day holiday, a time for our country to reflect on the hard work of our fellow Americans. The long weekend is typically celebrated through picnics, pool parties, and barbecues, as families and friends enjoy the last few days of summer before fall and winter approach. Sadly, the Labor Day holiday is also one of the deadliest, with drunk drivers endangering themselves and others on America’s roadways.
The City of Sevierville has completed work on a vehicle stack lane on Middle Creek Road to help relieve traffic congestion resulting from afternoon school traffic. The stack lane was built next to the southbound lane alongside the Sevier County Health Department WIC, and across from LeConte Medical Center (see attached map).
Area students will return to school on Wednesday, August 14, causing pedestrian and vehicle traffic to increase significantly. The flashing yellow school zone lights, indicating the presence of school children around schools, are being activated to remind drivers that the school year is about to begin.
“The overall goal is to get our children to and from school safely. Please help us keep our children safe by following the school zone traffic laws,” said Sevierville Police Chief Joseph Manning.
Please take note of the following recommendations from the Sevierville Police Department:
