KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— One of the most anticipated dates in recent Knoxville history is now official; I-40 in Downtown Knoxville will re-open to traffic on June 12, 2009. Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Gerald Nicely credited a “great team working on a model project,” at a press conference today announcing the I-40 re-opening date for the SmartFIX40 project.
“Given the magnitude of this project, its completion is a major milestone for TDOT, the city of Knoxville and the thousands of individuals involved who have made SmartFIX40 one of the most successful projects in history,” said Nicely.
