NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Construction began Wednesday on the Korean Veterans Boulevard roundabout art project “Stix.”
Crews began work on the project that consists of 27 70-foot, colorful, hardwood poles that will serve as an homage to the Native Americans who first populated Middle Tennessee.
The project was estimated to take about 6 to 8 weeks to complete.
Metro Arts officials and Rains Electric Company, Inc., the Nashville-based contractor conducting the installation, said that traffic interruptions and lane closures will be at a minimum.
Construction each day was set to last from 9a.m. to 3p.m. to avoid rush hour issues.
Lighting installation was scheduled to begin October, once the poles have been installed.
