  4. Having family that has dealt with coal operations in Kentucky, I have a very strong distrust of these kinds of operations. Unscrupulous is the kind word for it. The burden is on the company to make this happen, not Gaston county leaders.

  6. Today this evening. Update. I thought steel beam for office building. Now. Long steel beam between core and tower crane. Tomorrow morning red tower crane will jump going up.

  7. They have made significant progress on the exterior of the concourse E extension. Taken this morning from the gate E 14 area around 8:30am this morning. There were several workers on the roof. It appears that the blue roofing is in the process of being installed.

  9. Story on how local tenants are taking many of the spots from national retailers that have closed. What's new at Eastridge Mall? (gastongazette.com) I still think this mall should be redeveloped into mixed use town center with lots of apartments, a hotel, offices and retail and the roof peeled off.

  11. I hope I speak for all of us when I say a big "Thank you!" to @Chato_reyes for the intel on what's going on inside BNA and to @Sean blackdog for the intel on new arrivals and departures. By my lights, you both add a lot to the threads about the airport and I, for one, am appreciative. Yes, many others contribute in valuable ways, but I've noticed you two as relative newcomers who make a big impact.

  12. The beams are for stabilizing the tower crane and will be removed when the girders arrive and reach that level. Sadly, I think the wait for structural steel may be longer than we like. But look at it this way: These could be the record-setting tall skinnies for Nashville!

  13. Well here in NC we have 3 toll roads or express lanes projects with 1 more under construction and there is Not one toll booth in the state and never will be. It is all done by electronic passes or if you Nashvillians come over your licensed plate will be recorded and you will get a bill. It makes it fast and of course some are surprised but every toll road or express lanes is clearly marked. If it helps get roads built faster I am all for it. NC Quick Pass Home Tennessee is one of 15 states without toll roads but most of the southeast has plenty of them with Florida and Georgia

  22. This is what I saw this morning around 10 a.m. They had pieces laid out on the Union Street connector. But now it has been taken down to the vertical piece so there must have been a problem with the arm. Expensive mistake for someone, I bet.

  25. Kentucky has had them for years. Many of their first expressways through rural areas were toll roads. I think many of them have reverted to Interstate (free) use now. I can't discern the resistance to toll roads in Tennessee, as in some states they're popular with the rural crowd and in other states they're more an urban solution (e.g. GA 400, GHW Bush Turnpike - Tx190) for congestion. I drove a toll road south of Greenville SC a couple years ago and there was not another car on it for many miles. Tollways for express lanes have become very popular in Atlanta, and I'm surprised TN hasn'

  27. It’s almost that certain that British Airways will not return to BNA anytime soon. The pandemic continues to be out of control all over the world and the Delta variant is spreading rapidly among the unvaccinated. This is a worldwide setback, especially in the US where states like Tennessee have a very low vaccination rate. It’s become a pandemic of the unvaccinated and thousands people are unnecessarily dying.

  28. I was living down there when Beltway 8 opened. If the toll roads are run no better than the toll roads in NJ then we do not need them. I got a bill in the mail for $33.00 for a $3.00 toll I stopped and paid, but the 3rd party camera system said I didn't stop and pay. You don' really keep a toll receipt 3 weeks after the fact when traveling through a state when you are not use to tolls. I had no recourse other than pay the filthy lowlifes, so I really think Bridgegate happened and this is a way they bilk out of state drivers. They probably have those cameras programed to pick up on certain out

  29. You hit the nail on the head, however I do agree with nakers2 regarding Charleston and it's Old South style. I think women in Charlotte dress exceptionally well for a US city. It's somewhat of a "soft" modern style if you will. Meaning, seersucker will likely be implemented in the outfit somehow. Ha! Khaki pants/shorts and pastel shirts need to be outright banned for men in Charlotte though. I get so tired of seeing advertisements for this or that that feature Uptown scenes. It never fails that most of the men are wearing a pastel shirt with khakis. The best dressed city on th

The staff at Barista Parlor recognize me which is beginning to become a problem because their chocolate muffins are quite good...

  32. Already, between FNB tower, Circa Uptown, The Mint Apartments, and 500 West trade, there is a healthy amount of apartments/residential in the general area. Whenever the parking deck next to FNB is demolished and redeveloped you will likely see more apartments/hotels separate from the entertainment district. On a side note. Do we know if when the parking deck is eventually re-developed. Is the Residence Inn going to demolished or will it stay? Also don't forget. That you not only have the Carolina Panthers (10-11 home games including preseason) plus hopeful play off games

  34. For those interested and since it is in the same state here is the Wake County transit plan for 2035. Lots of bus rapid transit 24 miles which should all be in operation in 10 years, some 37 miles of commuter rail between Garner Raleigh Cary RTP and downtown Durham. (the good thing is RTP is right on the NC RR lines) Notice emphasis on frequent service even outside the BRT areas and reliability. (page 30) Wake-County-Transit-Plan-Update---FINAL-ADOPTED.pdf (nmcdn.io) enjoy the read and I would hope CATS could learn some things from this.

  35. "Bojangles Station": At first glance I thought that meant they were planning a stop at a Bojangles restaurant! "Next stop, McDonald's, then KFC Station." This is great information, though. Thanks for documenting all this, TGIBridays.

  36. The line could have its own ROW in the median and avoid the costly acquisition process altogether. And if the city actually wants to boost transit as a policy goal, then it should be fine with making central a two lane road. Even with the more complex acquisition process, it shouldn't necessarily take this long. Plenty of peer cities in other parts of the world do it faster (and for less money). In Montreal, the 42 mi automated light metro project REM was proposed in 2016 and started construction in 2018. Yes, there were land acquisitions involved. The line will open in phases between nex

  38. I can echo much of what CaptainJilliams has said. I grew up in Nashville but have lived in Chicago for almost a decade now, in various neighborhoods, and in all that time, I've never once seen a shooting, heard a shooting, seen someone mugged, had any problems, nor do I have any friends who have experienced any sort of crime or violence. I work downtown in the loop and live currently in Lincoln Park, but also lived in Wrigleyville and Buena Park. I don't own a car and use the "L" to get around and can't even say I've ever had any problems there, day or night. I leave my front door unlocked whe

  40. Here is a diagram from the Water/Sewer permit: Looks like it will have residential at the street level. Also no vehicle access to Hayes Street, and the parking garage will be lined with residential as well. This area is kind of a pedestrian no-mans-land, so I’m not surprised at the lack of retail. A few more projects like this, and ground level retail will make a bit more sense. I’m curious to see renderings, but I’m happy with the proposal.
