WHEREAS, Nolensville Road is a state road located in Davidson County that is maintained by the Tennessee Department of Transportation; and

WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Department of Public Works has identified the area of Nolensville Road from Old Hickory Boulevard to the county line as being in desperate need of widening; and
