Interstate 24 Multimodal Corridor Study


Recommended Posts

A new study is underway for community input along the major thoroughfare, interstate 24. The study will address new land uses, traffic studies, and seek community input about what interstate 24 needs. The rapid development of many communities along the corridor (Clarksville, Nashville, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga) and everywhere in between has forced the hands of community leaders to take ideas from the study to make improvements such as the eventual expansion of mass transit options. 




Here is an online survey for residents and travelers to place their input. The deadline for this survey is June 15.

Murfreesboro and Smyrna will receive one new interchange a piece. First, a new interchange has been planned for Rocky Fork Road in Smyrna at mile marker 68. The new interchange will help relieve traffic on Sam Ridley and Almaville Roads. Commercial and residential developers are already looking at this area for new expansion. If approved, future plans call for the extension of the road to Cool Springs at McEwen Road to make one continuous route between the two communities, particularly the Nissan Headquarters and the Nissan Factories. A new interchange is also planned at mile marker 72 for the new Veterans Parkway extension east of SR 840. The new interchange will allow a complete bypass of Murfreesboro's inner city. From I-24, the route will continue west eventually connecting to Joe. B. Jackson Parkway and back to I-24 at exit 84. Although, criticism of the plans toward increasing sprawl have created more concerns. Unlike the urban limited access/controlled access loops such as SR 374 in Clarksville, 155 in Nashville, and I-640 in Knoxville, Veterans parkway will be at grade with intersections which could create new traffic concerns. I think this is a huge mistake, and the city will pay for it in the future.
