NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Davidson County residents will get their chance Thursday night to give input on how to improve roads known for frequent accidents.

Metro Public Works will host the first of two public meetings at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Madison Library at 610 Gallatin Pike South.

Public Works has identified 27 intersections in their "Top Intersection Improvement Project." At the meeting, they will present proposed improvements and asked for public input and comments.

One of the intersections is Nolensville Pike at Thompson Lane, where they want to add an eastbound turn lane and to rebuild some of the signals with vehicle detection systems.

Similar improvements are proposed for the sharp turn on Shute Lane and Saundersville Road. Metro Public Works is looking to install a "prepare to stop when flashing" sign and they're also looking to improve the water drainage system at that intersection.

Metro Public works has been working to improve dangerous intersections for nearly seven years.

They have already made changes to intersections that needed immediate improvements.

A second meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 29 at the Edmondson Pike Library at 5501 Edmondson Pike.

For a look at the other intersections, go to Countywide Intersection Enhancement Project.
