Navigating the Cone Zone

IMPORTANT TRAFFIC INFO:

A section of Phillip Fulmer Way from Cumberland Avenue to Middle Drive will close on Monday, December 16, as part of the ongoing Student Union construction project.

Fans entering campus from Cumberland Avenue are encourage to use Volunteer Boulevard.

The section of road is closing for construction of a pedestrian bridge that will cross over Phillip Fulmer Way, connecting the new Student Union with the Hill. The road is set to reopen in early summer 2014.

To improve the traffic flow and decrease the time fans spend sitting in traffic, South bound traffic (towards the river) on Lake Loudoun Blvd will not be permitted to make a left hand turn onto Phillip Fulmer Way beginning 45 minutes prior to tip off. In addition, North bound traffic on Lake Loudoun Blvd will not be permitted to make left hand turn onto Chamique Holdsclaw Drive within 45 minutes of tip off.

This primarily impacts those permit holders who turn left from Lake Loudon to access the G10 or Lot 5 parking lots from Phillip Fulmer Way, and those who choose to enter 30A or G5/30 entrances from Phillip Fulmer Way.

Recommended alternatives to access Lot 5, G10, 30A, and G5/30 from Phillip Fulmer Way:

  • Arrive early!
  • Enter G10 from the Neyland Drive entrance
  • Enter Lot 5, G10, 30A, and G5/30 entrances off of Phillip Fulmer Way by taking Cumberland Avenue to Phillip Fulmer Way

"Cone Zone" signs featuring a hard hat-wearing Smokey have been placed around campus, helping direct motorists and pedestrians to find campus parking and detour around the construction. The latest information on campus construction can be found at conezone.utk.edu.
