A neighborhood revitalization plan has another Nashville street on its way to being pedestrian-friendly.
Crews worked hard to make 51st Avenue North in the Nations one of the first "complete streets" in Nashville.
A "complete street" is a roadway that includes both a walk and bike path on one side and street parking on the other side.
The plan also includes a north-south lane, a turning lane, and four crosswalks.
Metro Council member Mary Carolyn Roberts said the complete street was only the beginning of the neighborhood's revitalization.
This was typically considered a blighted area. Not just because of all the industrial, but because of the 18-wheelers that were going up and down the street continuously. We are trying to get the 18-wheelers off starting in June, which is gonna make it feel like a more walkable, bikeable neighborhood," said Roberts.
Weather permitting, street construction is expected to be complete in about two weeks.
