To connect with residents and business owners along the fast-growing corridor connecting communities in Davidson, Williamson and Maury counties, refine the recommendations from regional planning efforts and identify projects that can compete for funding. The Study will evaluate a variety of options along Interstate 65, US Highway 31/State Route 6 (Franklin Road), and the CSX railway. The corridor includes rapidly developing neighborhoods like Cool Springs, Nashville’s Wedgwood Houston, The Gulch, and more.
Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC), WeGo Public Transit, and TDOT with local community partners.
The current comprehensive regional transportation plan, adopted by area mayors and state officials in 2016, allocates more than $8 billion in anticipated federal, state, and local revenue to a variety of transportation projects between now and 2040 including highway expansions, public transit projects, walking and bicycling facilities, and technology upgrades for better traveler information and traffic management.
As part of the ongoing regional planning efforts, WeGo Public Transit (formerly Regional Transit Authority of Middle Tennessee) worked closely with residents, businesses, and community leaders to adopt a more detailed transit master plan, called “nMotion,” in 2016. The South Corridor was identified as a top priority in both the multi-modal regional transportation plan and the more detailed transit master plan. Additional details about this study are available at SouthCorridor.org.
