City leaders will reopen a road in east Knoxville known for flooding Monday afternoon following a year of renovations.
In the past year, crews raised the elevation of the Prosser Road, added concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks, installed new storm drains, and created bike lanes. In all the city spent $1.4 million on the project.
Prosser Road connects Knoxville Zoo Drive and East Magnolia. For many years, heavy rains consistently shut down this section of road.
