The Music Row Bikeway project was recently honored with a 2019 Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Award from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The honor recognizes outstanding initiatives that improve the efficiency, accessibility, affordability, and sustainability of transportation systems in the state. The honor was bestowed during the fifth annual Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Forum and Expo this fall. Brandon Taylor, PE, senior project manager, was present to accept the award on behalf of KCI.
In an effort to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety, Metro Nashville-Davidson County Public Works worked with KCI to redesign the bike lanes along Nashville’s famed Music Row and increase signal infrastructure in the high-traffic one-way corridor. Our team conducted a feasibility study, participated in community outreach and education, and then served as the lead engineer in the traffic engineering, design and implementation of the state’s first and longest left-sided, protected bike lanes.
