August 2020 Update
The project is currently in procurement for construction.
The Metro Department of Public Works, the designer’s consultants, and Metro Procurement are currently working to solicit competitive construction proposals.
There are numerous parcels involved in this project; right-of-way acquisition is necessary from certain parcels adjacent to the planned roundabout, but only temporary construction easements and a couple of stormwater easements will be necessary from parcels east of Madison Street. Rights of access have been acquired while the acquisition process moves towards real estate closings.
Metro Public Works is constructing a new roadway to extend Neelys Bend past Gallatin Pike. This project will include a new roundabout connection near Fifty Forward and Madison Square and include new streetscaping enhancements, sidewalk, a bicycle track, pedestrian amenities, stormwater improvements, and new street lighting.
