Henley Street Connector
|Designer:||Wilbur Smith Associates|
|Contractor:||The Rogers Group|
The Henley Street Connector project provides access to and from the central business district, Interstates 40 and 75, and US-441. Cooperation between business and historical groups, the City of Knoxville, and the Tennessee Department of Transportation resulted in numerous measures to preserve the historical and architectural integrity of the areas adjoining the project. Those measures, coupled with effective design and extensive landscaping, produced a beautiful, highly functional project, which also enhances its historical surroundings.
