KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) — Kingsport city officials voted unanimously Tuesday night to enter into an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Transportation for the Brickyard Park bicycle and pedestrian bridge.
This project will cost $3.5 million.
The bridge will connect the Brickyard and Riverview area to downtown Kingsport at Centennial Park.
Another approval Tuesday night included the unanimous vote to rezone a 43-acre lot near the end of Brickyard Park Drive in an effort to transform the area into a residential zone.
Also at Tuesday night’s virtual meeting, the board unanimously voted in approval of rezoning a 2.4-acre lot near the Brickyard area at the corner of Orebank Road and East Stone Drive.
This area will be repurposed for the construction of a new Dollar General, according to Ken Weems, Kingsport’s planning manager and zoning administrator.
