Franklin Tomorrow’s Aug. 12 FrankTalks focused on the South Corridor study, a project dedicated to surveying Davidson, Williamson and Maury counties to provide public transportation solutions to the ever-growing area.

Around 100 people gathered at the First Presbyterian Church in Franklin to hear Senior Supervising Planner at WSP Nashville Doug Delaney and Deputy Director at the Greater Nashville Regional Council Michelle Lacewell talk about the timeline of the study and some of the results from their data-gathering phase.

Delaney mentioned that existing organizations with their hands already in transportation like WSP, GNRC, WeGo Public Transit and the Tennessee Department of Transportation have all worked together with the communities to devise a rapid transit plan for the Middle Tennessee area.
