Every Place Counts

Nashville was one of four cities selected for the US Department of Transportation's "Every Place Counts Design Challenge," a series of community discussions of potential changes to neighborhoods and commercial districts disrupted by highway construction in the 1960s.

Here, the conversation centered on North Nashville's Jefferson Street corridor from Rosa Parks to 28th Avenue. Over 150 community members, planners, and Federal transportation officials participated in the two-day conference.
