Southeast Area Transportation & Land Use Study

Study Overview

As the third "transportation and land use" study undertaken by the MPO, the Southeast Area Transportation & Land Use Study draws together state, regional, and local partners to develop a preferred vision for growth and development in the area paralleling I-24 between I-40 and I-65 in Davidson, Rutherford, Williamson, and Wilson counties. The southeast area is one of the region's, and state's, most important economic engines, and continues to experience strong population and job growth. By taking steps now to coordinate plans for future development, participating agencies and jurisdictions can put in place the multimodal transportation improvements and land use policies necessary to support long-term prosperity and quality of life throughout the area.

This study provides an analysis of transportation needs across communities in Rutherford and neighboring counties. The study will evaluate growth and development scenarios, determine transportation deficiencies, and identify an array of multimodal transportation improvements. The findings of the study will serve as key input into the MPO’s long range planning efforts and local comprehensive plans and refresh the findings from the Southeast Corridor Transit Alternatives Analysis, which was completed in 2007.
