The goal for this project was to chart the course for a more attractive, economically
successful, vibrant and safe Cumberland Avenue. The Cumberland Avenue Corridor Project
was one of the first road diets in Knoxville and proved to be the optimum design solution.
Vaughn & Melton worked as a true partner with the City of Knoxville and its stakeholders,
to take a complicated, intense project from an initial concept to successful completion.
“This project, with Vaughn & Melton’s leadership, met the adopted goals, leveraged $190
million in private investment, exceeded expectations, and was delivered on time and under budget”.
