SR91 (Elk Avenue) – Elizabethton

Project Updates:

January 6, 2023

Motorists traveling on Elk Avenue in Elizabethton should be aware of upcoming road construction activities that will have an effect on traffic.  

Beginning on Monday, January 9, the eastbound lane on Elk Avenue will be closed from the Broad Street split to North Roan Street. This closure will be in place to allow crews to safely relocate utilities in this area.

This lane closure is anticipated to last until February 3.  Downtown traffic is recommended to proceed on Broad Street and use Lynn Avenue to access downtown Elizabethton.

This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution in this area as workers will be present.
