About the Study
The 8th Avenue South Multimodal Study is a partnership between the City of Berry Hill, Metro Nashville, and TDOT. Funding for the study were made available through the Nashville Area MPO.
The purpose of the study is to assess the changing land uses along the 8th Avenue South corridor and develop recommendations that improve safety, quality of life, and economic viability along the street while also maintaining mobility and accessibility for a variety of travel modes. The ways in which we get around Nashville involve more than just cars, and often impact neighborhoods that one drives through. This study is assessing how this corridor can be updated to evolve into a place for people to live and work as envisioned by NashvilleNext and the City of Berry Hill’s Community Development Code while maintaining local and regional mobility needs.
Phase 1 of the study examined the portion of 8th Avenue South mostly within the City of Berry Hill from Wedgewood Avenue to Berry Road. Findings from Phase 1 are linked below.
Phase 2 is currently underway and examines the area from the roundabout at Korean Veterans Boulevard to Wedgewood Avenue within Metro Nashville.
The study is planned for completion in summer 2017.
Open house and walking tour
About seventy community members participated in an open-house meeting at Room in the Inn on April 25, sharing their input and discussing possible options for the corridor. Their comments are currently being assembled and will be posted here; another meeting will be held in the near future, but no date has yet been set.
