NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A new petition aims to save the carpet at Nashville International Airport before the terminal gets a face lift.

The airport's brown carpet with its unique lines and swirly designs was installed in 2010. Last year, fans made an Instagram account celebrating the design.

Now, a petition hopes to save the carpet “from extinction.” It’s already garnered more than 400 of the needed 500 signatures.

“This distinct color combination and pattern are essential to the identity and personality that is the Nashville Airport, and we think that plans should be made to preserve it whether partially or in whole,” the petition says.

The changes are part of the "BNA Vision” plan, which includes expansion for Concourse D and terminal wings. Concourse D will add six new domestic aircraft gate, a variety of restaurants and retail options, and a live music stage.

It’s expected to be completed by 2020. All of the BNA Vision plan is expected to be finished by 2023.
