Harding Place Sidewalk and Pedestrian Enhancement Project

September 2016 Update

Harding Place pedestrian bridge

As we continue with Phase 2 (Nolensville Pike to I-24) of this project, we have made significant progress! The waterline installation/replacement has been completed. Excavation for retaining walls and rock fall protection is underway.

The excavation for the pedestrian bridge over 7 mile creek is complete and the new bridge is now constructed. Phase 2 also includes Metro Public Works installing approximately 1.4 miles of new sidewalk, curb and gutter.

These improvements boost quality of life for residents and strengthen communities along with helping to keep pedestrians safe and improve accessibility in this heavily traveled area.

Please be cautious while driving within the project area as one lane of traffic may be closed at intermittent times during construction. The majority of construction will occur during off-peak travel times, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to minimize disruption.
