School zone coming to MLK Parkway

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville Street Department crews are completing the installation of signs and hardware to establish a new 20 mph school zone on MLK Parkway/State Route 76 between Red Coat Run and Bellshire Drive in front of Clarksville Christian School.

The flashing school zone signs will become operational on Monday, Sept. 9. The 20 mph speed limit in the designated area on both sides of the divided highway will be in effect from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The posted speed limit on the roadway at other times of the day is 50 mph.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 3, digital message boards will be running all week along MLK Parkway/SR 76 to help people get ready for the school zone changes.

“As Clarksville Christian School has grown, it has become necessary to create a school zone to calm traffic on MLK Parkway on weekdays,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “I urge everyone who travels this roadway to pay attention to these changes, slow down at the designated times and do their part to make it safer to enter and leave the school area.”

Clarksville Christian School is participating in the cost of the equipment, Mayor Pitts said.

Clarksville Police will place extra patrols in the area as the school zone becomes operational, and the Street Department will be monitoring traffic and may adjust the school zone timing after studying how traffic is affected by the changes.

Clarksville Street Department workers install signage for a new school zone on MLK Parkway/SR 76 in front of Clarksville Christian School. The speed zone takes effect on Monday, Sept. 9.
