Nashboro Boulevard and Nashville Civil Rights Art Project Update

Please see below Notes prepared by Nashboro Master Association President Nigel Hodge from our district meeting most recently held regarding Nashboro Boulevard.  The meeting agenda back and front that was distributed is also below for those who could not make it.  Thank you.
  • Due to budget constraints, 1/2 of Nashboro Blvd. will be paved from Murfreesboro to Flintlock.  Flintlock to Bell road will be paved next year (a definitive date has not yet been set).  The total cost of this project is over $300,000.
  • The majority of the work will continue between the hours of 9a.m. - 3p.m.  Estimated completion is mid - late July.
  • Public Works will also be restriping the lines
  • In an effort to improve traffic flow and safety for vehicles & pedestrians, Metro will be adding a buffer lane/barrier between the car lane and bike lane (see attachment)
  • Back in April 2014, the traffic enginerring staff of Public Works conducted speed studies at two different locations on Nashboro Blvd.  The results showed that 85% of drivers were driving between 37mph - 38 mph.
  • Although the traffic studies indicated that the vast majority of residents are in compliance, Metro is willing to consider installing paving marking speed limits in the areas of Nashboro Blvd. most sucseptible to speeding.  The speed limit would be striped into the paving to increase visibility.
All the Best,
Nigel Hodge

Council Member Johnson,
Thank you for being a part of last night’s reception with Walter Hood for the Civil Rights Public Art project. The reception capped off a great day of meetings and research at the library’s Civil Rights Room. Walter is headed back to California with many new ideas and resources and a better understanding of Nashville’s Civil Rights experience.
Here is the link to the online feedback form that you requested. Anyone wishing to share information with him can so through July 25. The public is encouraged to ask questions of the artist, share memories or thoughts with the artist, and provide images or audio for the artist’s consideration as he finalizes his design for “Witness Walls”. Paper copies of the form are also available. Simply call or email me for a copy.
