Northwest Corridor Transit Study Explores Routes between Clarksville, Nashville
The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) of Middle Tennessee initiated the Northwest Corridor Transit Study to evaluate transit options between Clarksville and Nashville.
The study area consists of five corridors linking Clarksville, Ashland City and Nashville: I-24, SR-12/Ashland City Highway, a combination of the existing Nashville & Western freight corridor and needed rail right-of-way, CSX Rail east of I-24, and SR-112/US 41-A which runs parallel to I-24. One of the anticipated outcomes of the Study is short and long term transit solutions to alleviate congestion along I-24.
A second round of community meetings is currently being scheduled for mid-September.
About the Northwest Corridor Transit Study:
The Northwest Corridor Transit Study will be undertaken in accordance with processes established by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) with the intent of identifying a locally selected alternative that addresses the goals of mobility, land use, livability, economic development, and sustainability. In addition, the study will determine the scope and breadth of the project, concentrating on components such as ridership, capital, operations and maintenance costs, and the benefits and impacts of the proposed project.
