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.
Portions of the following streets will be temporarily closed to traffic between 7:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.:
Bruce Street from the Court House to Gary Wade Boulevard
Gary Wade Boulevard from Bruce Street to Main Street/Dolly Parton Parkway.
Motorists should consider alternate routes during this period. Traffic on nearby roads may also be heavy, especially on Main Street and Dolly Parton Parkway as the motorcycles travel east towards Newport Highway.
