Williamson County is at the center of an important study currently underway in the region — the South Corridor Study — led by The Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) with support from local governments and other agencies.
The South Corridor Study will identify a series of short-, mid- and long-term recommendations to implement the vision for rapid transit between Nashville, Berry Hill, Oak Hill, Brentwood, Franklin, Thompson‘s Station, Spring Hill and Columbia, as well as other neighborhoods, communities, employment centers and destinations along the 35-mile south corridor.
The study was initiated by the GNRC in partnership with the WeGo Public Transit and the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). WeGo and the counties and cities have contributed funding to support undertaking the study.
Delaney is a senior supervising planner in WSP’s Nashville office, and he is the WSP project manager for the South Corridor Study. Prior to joining WSP, Delaney served both as the assistant chief of environment and planning and director of the Environmental Division for the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).
FrankTalks is presented in partnership with Williamson Medical Center as a sustaining partner and Renasant Bank, a presenting partner.
