South Nashville Bikeway Planning

Map of South Nashville bikeway projects

South Nashville is currently difficult to bike in because interstates and major roads cut through and separate neighborhoods. By focusing on creating a safe and easy bikeway connection on Chestnut Street, Wharf Avenue, and Charles E. Davis Boulevard, people will be able to bike safely between the Napier, Sudekum, Chestnut Hill, and Wedgewood-Houston neighborhoods, to destinations within all four neighborhoods, as well as to Downtown and to the west via Edgehill Avenue. Additionally, providing this seamless connection will make it easier in the future to connect in other neighborhood streets via neighborways—a type of bikeway that creates a safe biking route by slowing down traffic on already quiet neighborhood streets instead of installing separated bike lanes.
