Franklin, TN (WTVF) — What will happen tomorrow night near Franklin’s new First Bank Amphitheater?
That’s what neighbors and many ticket owners want to know after a traffic nightmare at the first show at the amphitheater on Tuesday night.
The video shows miles of traffic backup around the venue with people entering and exiting Franklin’s new First Bank Amphitheater to see Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Marine Morris and more.
To make matters worse, Cody Buford says some popular GPS apps were routing drivers to the road through his grandfather’s private farm during the backup.
“For some reason, the Google and Waze apps have decided that this is a public road and a cut-through for anyone who wants to use it,” Buford said.
FirstBank Amphitheatre owner Rick Mceachern says he’s been attending a meeting starting Wednesday at 2:00 am to consider a new set of plans to get people in and out faster, ahead of the show that follows Thursday. ..
“Of course, fixing this issue and fixing it right away is our number one priority,” says Mceachern. “We’ve talked to town and county authorities to make sure this is the best spirit. We’re working up and down so we can find a way to make this better next time. increase.”
Owners say traffic surveys show that roads can support the expected traffic volume for these shows. This will never happen again, as neighbors want these changes to take effect as soon as possible.
