Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
The Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has scheduled two upcoming workshops in Sumner and Wilson Counties to discuss the State Route 109 Access Management Study with the public. Residents, business owners and anyone who commutes on State Route 109 are encouraged to attend the workshops.
The goal of the State Route 109 Access Management Study is to develop a set of customized access management standards and guidelines that will improve the movement of traffic, improve safety and lessen vehicle conflicts along the route. The study corridor is State Route 109 which stretches from SR-840 in Wilson County northward to I‐65 near the Robertson/Sumner County line.
The public workshops on Monday, Oct. 27 and Tuesday, Oct. 28 will focus on establishing a vision for the corridor that addresses public values and priorities, such as relieving congestion and improving safety issues. There will be a brief presentation, followed by public discussion in a workshop-style setting.
