Hey Debbie,
I hope you are doing well and wanted to let you know about an engineering project about to start on Lancaster Drive in South Knoxville and a quick heads up on another project at Ft. Dickerson Park.  It is technically in South Haven, but given proximity to South Doyle Middle School, many of the residents in that area likely use this street.  Engineering may have or will be sending you an update, and I apologize if this is duplication, but I thought it might be content worthy of a neighborhood newsletter for some of the South Knoxville neighborhoods.  
The Lancaster Drive sidewalk project has received their notice to proceed, March 13, 2023.   The project anticipated completion date is August 9th.   This project installs a sidewalk from Tilson Street to Sevierville Pike along the west side of Lancaster.  Some road closures and detours to avoid the construction area will be expected and will be well marked.  
There is a second project impacting Augusta Quarry at Fort Dickerson Park. This project is installing utilities for additional Phase 2 improvements at Augusta Quarry. The project will close the Augusta Avenue entrance to the park along with Augusta Quarry for the duration of the project. Utilities will be installed along the park entrance road.  The Chapman Hwy entrance to the park will not be affected.  My understanding is that the Parks department will be issuing a notice of the closure on the City website, so there may be some information coming soon that could supplement this, but I wanted to give you a heads up in case this might also be worthy of your newsletter.
