Next FrankTalks to focus on South Corridor Study

For many commuters in Williamson County, driving on I-65 is an unavoidable part of the day, and projections show traffic counts are expected to rise in the coming years.

To help determine solutions to the area's traffic woes, Franklin, Brentwood and other area cities partnered earlier this summer with local and state agencies to kick off the South Corridor Study, which will be the main subject of the next FrankTalks, hosted by Franklin Tomorrow on Aug. 12.

The event will include a presentation from Doug Delaney, senior supervising planner for WSP Nashville, the consultant for the study.

The study will examine three routes in the south corridor area: I-65, Franklin Pike/Road and the CSX railway. The study area will span from Maury County through Williamson County and into Davidson County, just south of downtown Nashville. According to Delaney, based on current estimates, Nashville residents could see as much as a 113% increase in time spent driving in the next 20 years.

Read more about the study in this story from our June issue.

The event will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 101 Legends Club Lane, Franklin, at 9 a.m. Read more about the event here.
