Contractors working for the City of Sevierville will be performing repairs on the Collier Drive bridge near Veterans Boulevard (eastern section of Collier Drive) beginning Tuesday, July 20, 2021. Weather and other conditions permitting, the work will be completed on or about August 20, 2021.
Multiple lane closures and lane shifts will be in place, resulting in half of the bridge being closed during the project. Traffic patterns may change frequently so motorists should be extremely careful in the area. Traffic in both directions will be maintained, however motorists should expect delays which could be significant during heavy traffic periods.
