NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — The Greater Nashville Regional Council on Tuesday released an updated Regional Transportation Plan that is now available for public review ahead of an adoption hearing next month.
The plan—which encompasses Davidson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson counties—is working as a "gateway to federal transportation funding" for Middle Tennessee.
"The Plan outlines recommendations for prioritizing more than $10.5 billion in anticipated federal grants and matching funds between 2021 and 2045," according to the GNRC.
A public workshop will be held on Feb. 4. An adoption hearing by mayors and transportation officials is slated for Feb. 17.
"Last year, regional mayors came together to declare 2020 as the 'Year of Transportation,' as local and state public officials and community leaders rallied together to address Middle Tennessee's growing traffic issues," GNRC said in a press release. "That bold step was tempered by the emergence of the coronavirus and the spread of the COVID-19 disease. As a result of the pandemic, leaders reprioritize resources to address the public health crisis."
