The James White Parkway is probably the worst thing that the state ever foisted off on Knoxville. I'd listen to anyone's ideas on ways to downgrade it to make it more useful.
Oddly, despite than the destruction of the South Knoxville neighborhoods that it bisected, and the creation of those puzzling re-directed street remnants, the two things that JWP could have done--it didn't do. One was a direct, non-stopping connection from the bridge northbound onto Neyland Drive. The other unfulfilled desire was efficient exits into downtown Knoxville proper.
The fact that those things were deliberately and specifically left out indicate that JWP was never intended to serve Knoxville or Knoxvillians. Gee, I wonder why Sevier Countians have the ear of TDOT?
