A resolution requesting the Tennessee Department of Transportation to install noise abatement walls along Interstate 65 between Whites Creek Pike and Fern Street.
WHEREAS, the portion of Interstate 65 between Whites Creek Pike and Fern Street is heavily traveled by both commercial and passenger vehicles; and
WHEREAS, this portion of Interstate 65 passes through a residential neighborhood in the north Nashville area; and
WHEREAS, for many years, the noise from the interstate has negatively impacted the wellbeing of the residents of this community; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Tennessee Department of Transportation to install noise abatement walls along Interstate 65 between Whites Creek Pike and Fern Street.
