28th - 31st Avenue Connector Builds Bridges in Nashville

Project Abstract

For several decades, Interstate 40 and a CSX railroad line separated North Nashville from West End and limited social and economic interaction between those communities. The recently completed 28th-31st Avenue Connector spans the railroad tracks to reconnect the two communities, answering a decades-old demand for such a project.

That demand came, at least in part, from community leaders who felt that convoluted traffic flow between these two areas of Nashville was negatively impacting economic development. Proponents argued that a new connector, bridging the CSX railroad to link 28th Avenue and 31st Avenue, would greatly improve traffic flow between North Nashville and West End, and the resources that those communities offer, including several large hospitals, six university campuses, and two community parks.
