Getting to University of Tennessee Knoxville
Travelers to UT and downtown have several options:
1. From the east going westbound on I-40 toward downtown, motorists can take Hall of Fame Drive (exit 389).
2. From the west going eastbound on I-40 toward downtown, motorists can take Alcoa Highway (exit 386B), 17th Street (exit 387), Henley Street (exit 388) and James White Parkway (exit 388A).
3. From the north going southbound on I-275 toward downtown, motorists can choose to continue on I-275 and exit into downtown or merge onto eastbound or westbound I-40. Those who exit going eastbound will be forced to then exit onto James White Parkway.
4. To access I-40 from the UT and downtown area, motorists can use James White Parkway. A temporary ramp leads from James White Parkway to I-40 westbound. James White Parkway to I-40 eastbound opened last fall.
More than 100 signs around the area will notify motorists of the closure and alternate routes.
