Clarksville, Tennessee (WTVF) — Is it possible that changes will come to one of the busiest roads in central Tennessee?
Clarksville City leaders are driving projects from Nashville to the Kentucky border. We are expanding Interstate to increase the number of lanes on Interstate 24.
The city has placed the project at the top of a so-called “wish list” to the state, called the legislative agenda.
The state has already included the project in Tennessee’s IMPROVE law, but it is not yet funded.
“Just by raising money, the state needs to understand how important it is,” said Stacey Streetman, a Clarksville city council member. “We are the fifth largest city in the state, and the traffic that passes through it is huge and growing day by day.”
Montgomery County and the Chamber of Commerce have joined the city of Clarksville to request the expansion of the I-24.
