New Roadblock for Nashville's AMP – Eric Alvarez

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The AMP project dodged one road block but ran into a new one Wednesday at Legislative Plaza.

State representatives voted to keep an amendment that would require projects like the AMP to get state approval at a transportation subcommittee.

The senate transportation and safety committee dropped that language but added a provision that would only let transit systems like the proposed AMP pick up and drop off passengers on the right side of the road.

That clashes with the AMP's center-lane design.

The AMP would connect east and west Nashville along Broadway and West End, which is technically a state highway.

Earlier this week, mayor Karl Dean joined with the mayors of Chattanooga, Knoxville and Memphis in asking lawmakers to let Tennessee's biggest cities keep control of local transit projects.
