Between 2004 and 2013,Cool Springs average daily traffic increased 13%. Traffic east of I-65 increased 26%! Job growth is expected to continue in the near future as well, according to this graph from the report.
This study proposed short-, mid- and long-term options and solutions involving transit to and from the area, but also a free lunchtime circulator route, pedestrian enhancements, and fully exploring the proposed bike share program.
