Effective November 4, 2018, you will notice certain traffic signals within the City limits placed on “flash” during designated hours to ease the flow of traffic during low traffic hours. Operation hours of lights on flash will be from Midnight to 5:00 AM. Traffic signals will resume normal operation after 5:00 AM.

Remember to follow the rules of the road and proceed according to City Ordinance 15-507 found under Title 15, Chapter 5, page 24 of the City of Crossville, Code of Ordinances:

  1. Flashing red (Stop signal). When a red lens is illuminated with intermittent flashes, drivers of vehicles shall STOP before entering the nearest crosswalk at an intersection or at a limit line when marked, or if none, then before entering the intersection, and the right to proceed shall be subject to the rules applicable after making a stop at a stop sign.
  2. Flashing yellow (Caution signal). When a yellow lens is illuminated with intermittent flashes, drivers of vehicles may proceed through the intersection or past the signal ONLY WITH CAUTION.

RULES FOR LEAF COLLECTION:

  1. Leaves must be within 6 feet of the curb in order for the vacuum truck to reach them.
  2. Leaves DO NOT need to be bagged. However, if you choose to bag your leaves, they will be picked up.

  4. TO NOTIFY THE CITY OF CROSSVILLE YOU HAVE LEAVES READY TO BE PICKED UP, PLEASE CALL THE PUBLIC WORKS OFFICE BY CALLING 931-484-7631.
