State of Franklin Road at ETSU is a major roadway with a high volume of traffic. Students should utilize the foot bridge at the Mini Dome or cross walks at intersections when crossing State of Franklin Road. University Parkway is also a four-lane road with a significant amount of traffic. Students should yield to pedestrians in cross walks and observe speed limits on campus and on surrounding city roadways. The Johnson City Police Department will be enforcing speeding, jaywalking and other traffic laws to help ensure a safe environment for the students at ETSU.
