The Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee (RTA) is mid-way through a study to evaluate transit options between Clarksville and Nashville.
One of the key components of the project is input from those who live, work and travel along this corridor.
An open house style public meeting to provide updates on the project and solicit additional input will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 5-7 p.m. at Vantage Pointe Village, 2035 Vantage Pointe, Ashland City (off Highway 12 South).
The open house meeting will update participants on the study’s initial findings and seek additional feedback. Participants are welcome to “come and go” throughout the two-hour session.
“The project process is entering a key stage in which we will have to make important decisions about which alternatives will move forward,” said Felix Castrodad, director of planning for the RTA, in a news release. “It is imperative for the public to get involved to have an understanding of the process and let us know what’s important to them.”
The study area consists of five corridors linking Clarksville and Nashville: Interstate 24; Highway 12; a combination of the existing Nashville & Western freight corridor and needed rail right-of-way; CSX Rail east of I-24; and Highway 41-A, which runs parallel to I-24.
The anticipated outcomes of the Study are short and long term transit solutions to connect travelers to destinations (work, school, shopping, entertainment and more) and address anticipated congestion along I-24.
