Looking to feed a city that has demanded a focus on neighborhoods, Mayor Megan Barry has rolled out a new program to systematically make street and sidewalk improvements at some of Nashville's most dangerous intersections.
Barry held a press conference Wednesday morning at Neely Bend Road and Cheyenne Boulevard in Madison — one of two intersections that will receive the first round of improvements — to announce an infrastructure program that will start by addressing 15 intersections with more to follow.
Public works officials say the work could cost around $500,000 to $1 million per intersection. It will to include road realignment, extended turn lanes, traffic signal upgrades, new sidewalks and pedestrian curb ramps, bike lanes and crosswalks.
