My Comment: Mayor Karl Dean is urging people to engage to stop HB2156. To see the mailing I received from Mayor Dean follow this link. I will try to be there for the anti-AMP rally if I can get away and will call or email the listed Representatives.  I actually think it is time Nashville started building an improved mass transit system, but taking three lanes of West End and spending $175 million to do so seems like the wrong approach. Taking roadway capacity will slow traffic on West End not speed it up. The AMP is the wrong approach on the wrong roadway.

  1. AMP may be "the wrong approach on the wrong roadway" -- I tend to agree-- but HB2156 takes away the option of ANY mass transit development in Davidson County on ALL state roads. That is exactly contrary to what you say you want. This bill targets only our city.... not Memphis, not Knoxville, not Chattanooga. Local voices in Middle TN lose the vote to the big imposing state.... led by the same folks that complain of the same tactics at a federal level. Seem inconsistent?
