Downtown traffic and safety study begins

Through a grant awarded from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), the Town of Oneida has kicked off a traffic and safety study that will look at improving mobility, connectivity, and safety downtown. A public meeting to discuss the project goals, timeline, and request input from the community will be held on June 25, 2024 at 5:00 PM at the City Hall Courtroom (19922 Alberta Street). 

The public is invited to learn more about the project and share their input on transportation challenges, priorities, and improvements they would like to see.

An online survey is also available to collect experiences and opinions from the community. The survey will be available online on the town’s webpage, Mayor Phillips-Jones’ social media, and in-person at the Oneida Public Library during normal hours and City Hall from 1-3 PM Monday through Friday. Oneida envisions a Downtown that provides safe and accessible transportation options for everyone in the community. We want to hear from everyone about their experiences and what is needed to enjoy and feel safe traveling through and within Downtown. This is a chance to have a say in the future of transportation in Oneida.

Whether you’re an employee, student, or resident, we encourage you to come to the meeting, take the survey, and share your thoughts. 

Staff and consultants will be available at the public meeting for questions regarding the project. For more information, please contact Mayor Lori Phillips-Jones at or (423) 569-8300. Complete the survey by visiting The survey is open beginning June 14.
