The Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has scheduled three upcoming workshops in Wilson and Sumner counties to discuss the State Route 109 Access Management Study with the public.
Residents, business owners and anyone who commutes on S.R. 109 are encouraged to attend the workshops.
The goal of the S.R. 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, according to a statement released by the MPO. The study corridor is S.R. 109, which stretches from S.R. 840 in Wilson County northward to I-65 near the Robertson/Sumner County line.
The public workshops on Tuesday, April 14, Wednesday, April 15 and Thursday, April 16 will introduce a proposed set of access categories that would be applied to segments of the route in order to improve the flow of traffic and mitigate safety concerns. The specific locations of concern identified in the first round of workshops held in the fall of 2014 will also be addressed. Those interested in attending should choose a workshop with a time and location that is most convenient:
- Tuesday, April 14, 5:30 until 7 p.m. at Boxwell Reservation's Stahlman Dining Hall, located at 1260 Creighton Lane in Lebanon
- Wednesday, April 15, 5 until 6:30 p.m. at the Portland Public Library, located at 301 Portland Blvd. in Portland
- Thursday, April 16 from 5:30 until 7 p.m. at Gallatin City Hall, in the Council Chamber, located at 132 West Main Street in Gallatin
