  1. Mississippi River reopened for barge traffic this morning As of 9:00 a.m. CT Friday, we’ve opened up the river to commerce on the water. At last count, there were 39 northbound vessels carrying 981 barges. There were 28 southbound vessels with 477 barges lined up

  3. It should be fairly easy to place the cap over I-40, just $$$. It would be similar to building a bridge, just a bit longer. Ventilation would be required depending on length, but would most likely be required It would make logical sense to do this and widening, at the same time...logical sense...
  4. The truck lane from Cookeville to Monterey is needed the most and will be the most expensive, then Buffalo Valley Correct about tunnel and extending the airport runway over I-40 Stopped at Hartman Drive only because that was a segment and gets thru the I-840 interchange. Next segment will go through Lebanon, but I don't know if that will be to 70 or a new East Hartman. Maybe some other folks here know, but not me
  5. That is the Royal Canin plant in Lebanon. Mars bought it (from Nutro) and they are expanding to double capacity. Very interesting to see those tower cranes there (has only been one for the past year). The second crane has been up for a few months now
  6. Gulch Crossings never resumed their light strip, correct? Not to negative, but as a safety concern; the white lighting on the NES building will blind you, while driving past at night
  7. ^^yep Here’s a few items from today's Outlook Williamson: Williamson Inc. responded to 12 "requests for info" in Q1 vs 13 for ALL of 2020 and 17 for 2019 Companies look for 3 things: attainable housing, transportation, and education. It is noted that Williamson County is having issues with the first 2 items. Traffic and infrastructure is obviously an issue, but affordability of housing is huge. The schools are the easiest selling point for the area While HQ relocations make the national headlines, existing companies' expansions with regional hubs here in Middle
  8. FYI, TDOT stated it is not due to the seismic work and this appears to be metal fatigue. The majority of the seismic work was to the piers and supports Right now, we have to wait another 1-2 days for initial safety analysis, then, proceed with inspection of the remainder of the bridge, which will be weeks **let's hope they open the Mississippi River for barge traffic. If not, panic buy toliet paper
  9. Let's hope not. That is NOT zoned for warehouse. There was just a huge fight to stop a similar proposal, just months ago. Now another developer is back, again, trying to cross "the line" that separates industrial from residential
  10. Educational Media Foundation from Rockland, CA is moving to Williamson County. Time for us Tennesseans to dust off Grandmama's china and welcome this nonprofit into the family. @williamson_inc EMF brings in about $220 million in revenue every year. Reeves said he anticipates roughly 160 employees will move here, and the nonprofit will be looking to hire another 160 employees locally K-LOVE Radio
  11. Probably not gonna be good news... TDOT is holding a press conference and will be on Facebook live at 10:30 am **UPDATE** River traffic will remain blocked for another 1-2 days for bridge analysis. Further decisions will be made after the analysis is completed. Could be closed weeks Vehicle traffic - depending on analysis, could reopen a portion of the bridge, or be closed for weeks to months At this time, the inspection team is not allowed on the bridge until further analysis is completed. At that point, they will inspect the remainder of the bridge

  13. I-40 Hernando DeSoto Bridge closed immediately due to a crack. Vehicle and, also, all river traffic is suspended until further notice https://www.tn.gov/tdot/news/2021/5/11/i-40-hernando-desoto-bridge-shut-down-for-repairs.html
  14. I think they just fixed that a few years ago, so all is well! Hahaha
  15. AND the river is closed to river traffic also https://www.tn.gov/tdot/news/2021/5/11/i-40-hernando-desoto-bridge-shut-down-for-repairs.html Here’s a screenshot from 7:30pm
  16. Timeout everyone! This is no longer Nashville Bits and Pieces Thanks!
  17. I absolutely agree with all of your points, but a city bus cannot turn that corner on KVB - and they put a fire hydrant on the corner, to boot! But that corner by the Hampton....that's definitely out of kilter
  18. I would expect a Terrazzo look-a-like (in terms of the L-shape), but 16 stories. I expect a square parking garage encompassing the whole lot (The parking lot at center)
  19. Wednesday, May 5 at 6pm I-40 entrance, arrivals, and departures closed https://bnavisionnashville.com/construction/
  20. They have been loading schedules since covid started BNA has, obviously, been in discussions with BA about restarting the flight. There is some $$$ leftover from the original incentives that can be used to help restart the flight. Both the state and city are exploring additional incentives to help, also Until we get an announcement, those schedules are just as good as placeholders
