SR- 46 Intersection Improvements, from I-40 to SR-1 (US-70, Henslee Drive)
Including the Intersection of SR-1 at SR-1 (East College Street)
(Formerly Southwest Dickson Bypass)
As a result of the Department's decision to move forward with a Traffic Systems Management (TSM) alternative to alleviate traffic congestion in Dickson, a corridor study was undertaken along the SR-46 corridor. The study included a detailed evaluation of the area and included close coordination with the City of Dickson. Upon completion of the study in September 2013, several recommendations were made to improve system linkage, travel times, congestion, and safety along the corridor. Based on results of the corridor study and with input from city leaders, the Department is currently developing plans to provide for improvements to twelve intersections along SR-46 between Henslee Drive and I-40 and one additional intersection at Henslee Drive and East College Street. In addition to improvements at individual intersections, a coordinated traffic signal system is also proposed to be installed along two segments of SR-46; Henslee Drive to Jackson Brothers Way and Livestock Road through the I-40 ramps.
Other improvements proposed as part of the project include:
