WCN Editorial Team 9 Feb 2021 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Metro Public Works has broken ground on the first phase of the Madison Station Boulevard Complete Streets Project.

The work on the Madison Station Boulevard project is divided in to two phases, where the $7m Phase 1 is the roundabout phase from Gallatin/Neelys Bend to Madison Street at Nashville Fire Station 31.

The $5m second phase of the project is the streetscaping phase from Madison Street to Old Hickory Boulevard.

The work on the project involves construction of a new roadway and roundabout that will provide a connection to Gallatin Pike at the Neely’s Bend intersection. It will also address the local connectivity issues in the area.

Upon completion of both phases, Madison Station Boulevard will serve as a pedestrian, bicycle, and motorist connection between Old Hickory Blvd. and Gallatin Pike.

It will also provide access to the adjacent Madison Town Center site, which is positioned for future development.

Metro Public Works stated that the construction team of the project, which is expected to be completed in 18 months, is led by Kiewit.

The team also includes Metro Public Works staff, TTL as the prime design consultant along with Hawkins Partners, Booker Engineering, R.G. Phillips Consulting, and Varallo Public Relations.

Nashville District 8 council member Nancy VanReece said: “I’m so grateful to see this project focused on neighborhood priorities and quality of life.

“Madison Station Boulevard was designed with community input and creates a place that will provide a new front door for Fifty Forward, be home to the Music City Roots and Amqui Station campus and get us closer to a new park behind the Madison Branch Library.

“The entire Madison community and property owners all the way to Old Hickory Blvd have been anxiously awaiting this day.”
