ELIZABETHTON — A portion of West G Street at the Tweetsie Trail crossing is closed and will remain closed during weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through May 22.

Crews with Summers-Taylor Construction Company are making improvements to the heavily travelled crossing to make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists using the trail. A grant was awarded to the city through the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s multi-modal program to make the safety improvements to this intersection as well as three other intersections — Williams Avenue, Hudson Drive and Bemberg Road.

The city asks commuters to use alternative routes to West G Street for the next two weeks and use caution at the other intersections when construction crews are present. The project is expected to be completed at all four intersections by the end of May.
