KINGSPORT – The Netherland Inn Roundabout will close at 9 p.m. on Sunday August 19th and remain closed for the next 45 days to allow for repairs. The closure will require the use of detour routes, allowing no movement in the traffic circle itself from Netherland Inn Road, West Center Street or Industry Drive. However, slip lanes from Center Street to Netherland Inn Road and from Industry Drive to Center Street will remain open. The repair project is being paid for by a performance bonding company at no additional cost to City taxpayers. Detour routes include West Stone Drive to Lynn Garden Drive to Center Street as well as Riverport Road to Wilcox Drive to Center. Motorists are asked to plan ahead and use the utmost caution in the work zone.
