August 2020 Update
Metro Public Works is currently working on processing the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) agreement amendment to submit to Metro Council.
Next month: Metro Public Works anticipates the approval of the amendment in order to begin securing on-call services from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to start right-of-way (ROW) appraisals and acquisitions.
Metro Public Works is coordinating with the Department of Transportation to construct an 8 foot sidewalk, 4 foot furnishing zone, and curb/gutter along the north side of Lebanon Pike. The new sidewalk will run from the intersection of McGavock Pike to Old Lebanon Pike. This project will establish connectivity between existing sidewalks within the project limits.
In addition, signal upgrades will be made at the intersections of McGavock Pike and Graylynn Drive with pedestrian enhancements that will include ADA ramps, crosswalk markings, and pedestrian signals.
