Construction, Congestion, and Pedestrian Accidents

by Staff Blogger | April 24th, 2017

Remember that statistic from more than a year ago that 100 people move to Nashville every day? Well, the statistic still stands. In fact, by some estimates, the number has gone up. The constant influx of new folks means increased traffic and congestion. If you’ve been anywhere near downtown in the last couple years, you know that it also means more construction. It seems a new apartment building or retail space is in process everywhere you turn. Although progress is great, new construction doesn’t always bode well for pedestrians.

As more and more traffic hits Nashville, a lot of folks will consider alternate ways of getting to where they need to be, such as walking. That means navigating around construction zones where the sidewalk may be closed or coming within feet of heavy machinery when they remain open.
