After the $5 billion Let's Move transit plan failed in Nashville, city leaders have been pitching ride-shares, scooters, and even aerial trams to get around a growing Music City. Even gubernatorial hopeful Diane Black has released her own plan.

In the plan , Black says "big government boondoggles are not the solution."

The Republican representative wants to convene leaders from Middle Tennessee counties to develop a master plan for the entire region, not just Metro. 

As part of the idea, Black proposed:

  • Completing 840 so that commercial traffic can avoid downtown
  • Re-thinking design for on and off ramps
  • Double-stacking I-65, 40 and 24 as they pass through the downtown corridor
