New Traffic Alert Information Now Available on City Website

October 15, 2012

The city of Bristol, TNhas added a new feature to its website (www.bristoltn.org) A Road Closings Alert Box is now located on the home page news scroll. Alerts are updated as new closings or re-routings are reported through the city’s Traffic Engineer’s office. This feature will be a permanent part of the homepage and will be updated weekly.

To see current closings, look for the blue box within the scroll, click on “More” immediately under the box and the list of closing will appear for your perusal.

“Many times we have members of the community call to find out what is going on in a particular part of town where the road is closed. This notification piece will allow the public as much advance notice as possible and allow them the opportunity to find a new route in order to avoid traffic delays,” said Terrie Talbert, Director of Community Relations for the city. “The city continues to have exciting events that require, for safety reasons, that streets be closed. And as we strive to keep streets throughout the city in good condition it may sometimes require short periods of closings or re-routing. This new tool should help in keeping everyone aware of what is happening and when.”
