PEABODY STREET TO CLOSE FROM 5TH TO 7TH AVENUES; 5TH AVE TO BECOME 2-WAY

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Effective this Monday, April 30th, a section of Peabody Street between 5th Avenue and 7th Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic for construction of the Korean Veterans Boulevard extension.

At the same time, 5th Avenue South (which is currently one-way for northbound traffic) will become a 2-way street from Peabody to Lafayette Street.

The Peabody Street closure is expected to be in effect until early June of this year. 5th Avenue will remain 2-way until the KVB project is completed in December.

A map of detour routes and other project information is available on the KVB project website: www.koreanveteransblvd.com.

The KVB Extension will be a new four-lane, median divided roadway providing a connection between 4th Avenue South and 8th Avenue South. It will terminate in a multi-lane roundabout at a new reconstructed intersection of 8th Avenue and Lafayette Street.
