Improvements Planned For Five Metro Intersections
July 19, 2010
Public Works uses federal funds for locations identified in safety study
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Public Works has begun work on traffic signals, signing, pavement, pavement markings and pedestrian improvements at five intersections in Davidson County.
This work is being paid for with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and is 100% federally funded. The intersections were selected during a Metro funded study. The improvements will address safety and the general operation and appearance of the intersections. Weather permitting, work on all projects is expected to be completed by the end of November.
Work zones will primarily be limited to the intersection areas only. Some temporary lane closures can be expected, but working hours will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays, weekends and at night between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. to minimize disruptions.
