The city of Knoxville has completed a report summarizing the Chapman Highway Implementation Plan that ranks the Maryville Pike intersection as a top priority.

The report, prepared on behalf of the city of Knoxville, studied a six-mile section of Chapman Highway within the city limits, between Blount Avenue (near Henley Bridge) and Mountain Grove Drive (just south of Gov. John Sevier Highway). It combines traffic data on 47 projects with input from stakeholders recommending priorities for safety improvements along the state route.

Maryville Pike and Martin Mill Pike ranked at the top of the survey, both scoring 157 points based on community input and technical data from traffic engineers.

The 40-page final report summarizing the plan is posted on the city of Knoxville's website at
