Working site for TN Route network

Each section of the network will have its own blog entry with links to relevant resources. Comment boxes are for suggestions and updates that may then be incorporated into the main post. Note: Proposed Routes are listed On the right panel. You may click on these and comment as in a regular post. However, it is a good idea to send me an email a bruceeday at gmail dot com

White House, Franklin, Nashville and USBR 23

Much is happening. David Shumaker set up meetings with representatives of the cities of White House, TN, Franklin, TN and Nashville, TN.  We met with White House City Administrator Gerald Herman and Director of Parks and Recreation Ashley Smith. The city already has the route striped as a bicycle lane and suggest they would install USBR signs when the route is approved.  We are to have a meeting with the Leisure Activities committee in the next couple of months to discuss how White House can be even more bicycle friendly.

In Franklin we met with Mayor Ken Moore and Assistant City Administrator Vernon Gerth who also expressed full support for the project. Franklin is a bit tougher with no obvious best route. It will need to be done in close coordination with Nashville.  The plan is to get input from the very active and well respected Harpeth Bicycle Club, submit some options to the city, and they will review and act on them.  We also picked up names of persons to contact in Williamson County.

A meeting with stakeholders in the Nashville Metro area is scheduled for 6 pm at the Oasis House on Feb. 12, 2013. Adams Carroll of Walk Bike Nashville has taken the lead. It is hoped this meeting will produce a route from White House through Nashville and Franklin into rural Williamson County. From there we will contact representatives of the jurisdictions in the southern counties.

One final note, Kerry Irons with Adventure Cycling who is handling the initial corridor designations prefers to leave USBR 25 as it is and name the route from Louisville though Nashville and into Alabama USBR 23. No big deal since it will be a while before signs are erected.
