Tennessee: Walk Bike Nashville to ask city leaders for money to fund transit fix

Dickerson Pike appears to be such a bad traffic issue in Nashville, that city leaders submitted a proposal requesting $1.5 million dollars in federal money to figure out how to fix the dangerous stretch. Thursday, city leaders found out they lost out on the bid. The Mayor’s Office responded saying, “While we are disappointed in not being awarded 2018 BUILD grant funding, a vision for high-capacity transit and equitable economic development along Dickerson Pike to serve as a model for the rest of the city remains a priority for this administration. We are moving forward with preparing this corridor for transit improvements, and will re-apply for BUILD next year.”
