I-65 Beautification Project on Tap for 2020

Bowling Green will be hard to miss for the millions of people who travel Interstate 65 annually if the BeautifI-65 project is built as expected later this year.

Under the direction of community beautification group Operation P.R.I.D.E., the effort will include four-plank wooden fencing, colorful flags and landscaping at exits 22, 26 and 28, as well as building two gateway signs at exits 20 and 30 for drivers coming to the city from the south and north.

Growth of Seasonal Ice Rink Leads to Calls for Extended Season

If there were ever any doubts that the seasonal SoKY Ice Rink had gained traction after four years of operation, the cold, hard numbers from the season that wrapped up Jan. 5 should put them to rest.

It’s become a four-letter word in Middle Tennessee.

Maybe it’s because drivers lose about 58 hours a year stuck in congestion. Or because Nashville drivers spend roughly 20% more than the national average commuting — more than $7,700 annually. Or, maybe traffic ticks people off because just one alert snarls the entire ride.

Whatever the case, Steve Glover, an at-large member of the Nashville Metro Council, weighs in, “traffic is horrendous, and we hate it!”

Glover also readily admits there’s a problem, and throwing more money at public transportation isn’t his answer.
