Harding Place Sidewalk and Pedestrian Enhancement Project Moves Forward

February 24, 2014

Construction to begin this week

NASHVILLE, TENN. – The Harding Place Sidewalk and Pedestrian Enhancement Project is moving forward and crews are anticipated to break ground on Phase 1 this week. Intermittent lane closures should be expected in the outside eastbound lane throughout the duration of construction. Metro Public Works will monitor traffic conditions throughout the construction to ensure the least disruption.

One of the early construction tasks includes a large outcropping of rock that will be hammered out. All rock excavation will be completed during daytime hours.

This project is being managed locally by Metro Public Works and is funded through a federal transportation enhancement grant awarded by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The project involves the construction of sidewalks and other pedestrian enhancements along the south side of Harding Place in three phases between Timberhill Drive and I-24 and will provide pedestrians a safer way to walk from their homes to retail shops, restaurants and transit, as well as to church and school.
