Nashville sidewalk project is complete
Nashville's sidewalk project is wrapping up and will put the town one step closer to being a walkable community.

Two sidewalk projects were put on the agenda for the town. One, completed last Spring, repaired already existing sidewalks. The current project places new sidewalks in three different areas of town.

The Department of Transportation enhancement grant project was completed by June 8, according to Brandon Powell of Stocks Engineering. All that will remain is one sidewalk tile, which will be left open for a monument. Powell said a ceremony should be held within the next few weeks to put in the monument, which will indicate the project was DOT funded.

Sidewalk was put in on Washington Street, from the Kangaroo gas station to the Town and Country and in front of Lowe's Foods. Another patch of sidewalk was put in on Highway 58 from Brake Street to Ward Street.

Completion of the project will help the town reach its goal of becoming a walkable community.

"(Sidewalks) do a great deal," Powell said. The Town of Nashville is still a very laid back town. It still has a small town feel to it so sidewalks help to balance that. I think it does a lot for the town."

In the future, the town will continue looking at ways to extend sidewalk to other areas. Councilman Donald Street said the board is looking at requiring future developers to include sidewalks in their plans.
