Second Public Meeting Held On Dangerous Intersections

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A second public meeting will be held Tuesday night on how to improve 27 intersections to prevent deadly crashes in Davidson County.

The meeting will be from 5:30 until 7 p.m. at the Edmondson Pike Library.

Metro Public Works 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.

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