Clarksville City Updates for October 2nd, 2012
Posted By Bill Summers On Tuesday, October 2, 2012 @ 6:00 am In News | No Comments
Clarksville, TN – In my article of September 14th, 2012, I mentioned the Madison Street/Hwy76-MLK Improvement Project Concept. With this article I am letting the cat completely out of the bag.
I have been bouncing this concept around for a couple of years, gathering information and discussing it with our Clarksville Street Department engineers from time to time.As I had mentioned in that previous article, with finally having success in getting attention (and money) to the Exit 11 and Sango Road issues, I felt it was time to jump forward with another road issue that affects our ward 10 in particular and Clarksville in general.
I briefed my proposal at the recent Street Department committee meeting and received their approval to move forward with a rough concept design. They will inform Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan of the project and their approval.
There are a number of details that would have to be addressed since this project would involve the businesses in the area, the city and potentially the state. There are several routes the access roads could use. Their routing could directly affect more or fewer businesses depending on scenario suggested. The access roads could have two or three entrance/exit points depending on how they are designed and are laid out.
I do want to caution residents and businesses in the proposed area that nothing is a done deal so I don’t want anyone to get too excited or upset until a general plan can be developed for all to see. So any rumors that this will happen or that will not happen are just that….rumors with no validity or fact. If you hear rumors, contact me for what is actually going on.
I believe there are many positives to this project based on input/complaints from citizens, safety issues and potential improved customer access to the businesses in the area.
I will keep you posted as this concept project evolves. Any thoughts or concerns from area residents and business to me on this project will be greatly appreciated.
