Saturday UT Football Home Game Detours and Delays

 

Game Day Detours:

On Saturdays when UT has a home football game, the routes* listed below are scheduled to go on detour at the end of each football game. EXACT TIMING IS TO BE DETERMINED based on the scheduled game time, how long the game lasts, when Knoxville Police Department closes down roads and game day traffic.

 

Route 17: Sutherland

Outbound: From Knoxville Station, left on Church, left on Hall of Fame, left on Summit Hill onto Western to regular route

*Other routes may be affected if KPD shuts down additional roads.

 

It is possible these detours may begin earlier if KPD needs to shut down roads due to traffic or other safety concerns. This is especially likely on rivalry game days when we play Florida, Alabama and Kentucky.
