Growth across the Middle Tennessse is adding to traffic.

A new South Corridor Transportation Study aims to identify specific improvements for one of the major corridors connecting Davidson, Williamson, and Maury counties.

The Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) heads the study.

Deputy Director Michelle Lacewell said through a series of community meetings, the goal is to understand what road improvements would help commuters along the corridor.

The study will evaluate options along I-65, Franklin Road, and the CSX railway.

Lacewell said a common challenge for commuters is getting from their homes to and from the interstate.

“Hopefully through this process, we’ll be able to determine specific challenges in areas, desires for improvement, whether that’s technology, transit, or improvements to existing roadways and then bring those recommendations back to the public with a second round of outreach,” said Lacewell.
