Succotash my Balzac, dipshiitake.

Sounds like a hair style

The new signs for the Broadway on-ramp to I-40 West have been unveiled. These are the signs that will alert drivers that the poorly named "blow-and-go weave" from the ramp onto James White Parkway is now considered a traffic violation.
As a former Broadway-to-UT commuter, I appreciate the danger of the intersection as well as anyone. Something needed to be done, and, though it is very inconvenient, this is probably the best short-term solution.
It is also another frustrating example of TDOT's "fix it later" approach to highway design around Knoxville. I wonder what their solution will be for the excess traffic re-routed down North Fifth Ave as a result of the new prohibition. Coupled with the proposed closure of Magnolia Ave with that traffic re-routed to West Fifth Ave, the cluster of narrow-shouldered intersections near South College and Chicken City (also a stone's throw from the KAT bus lot) will likely become downtown's newest headache.
