Chapman Highway Implementation Plan

Chapman Highway is a key commercial area and major entry point into Knoxville and Knox County from Blount and Sevier counties. The Chapman Highway Corridor affects tens of thousands of people each day.

This is not another plan for the Chapman Highway corridor. This effort will evaluate previous studies, confirm their recommendations, identify new issues, and develop a strategy for road improvements.

Next Steps

The second Chapman Highway survey is now closed. We appreciate the continued community feedback that has been received throughout this process. Your input has helped inform the recommendations that are currently being compiled. The final report will be released later this summer and will be available on this project page.

About the Study

The study focuses on a 6.2 mile segment. It begins at the Henley Street Bridge and continues south to Mountain Grove Drive, just past John Sevier Highway.

Kimley Horn and Associates, Inc. have been hired to assist Knoxville-Knox County Planning (Planning) and the City of Knoxville to conduct the study and facilitate a community planning process. The study will result in a phased implementation of transportation improvements identified in past studies that are focused on:

  • Safety for all users
  • Enhanced economic development and redevelopment opportunities
  • Preservation of the corridor as a major thoroughfare in and out of the City
