Demonbreun Street Bikeway community meeting this Wednesday 

The Nashville Department of Transportation is proposing a new design for the Demonbreun Street Bikeway to improve the safety of the road for all users. On Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Midtown Hills Police Precinct, Metro staff and partners will be available to share information about the proposed redesign and answer questions. The meeting will be an open house, and all are invited to stop by at any time during the hourlong meeting. 

Demonbreun Street is a critical connection between downtown and midtown for bicyclists and one of the busiest segments of Nashville’s bicycle network.  

If you are interested in joining members of the MoveVU staff to bike from campus to the meeting, email by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Don’t have a bike on campus? There are BCycle stations located near campus and near the Midtown Hills Precinct.  

More information about the meeting is available on the NDOT website.

MoveVU calls for a transformation in how the Vanderbilt community commutes to campus, with less reliance on single-occupancy vehicles and parking lots and a greater focus on sustainable commute modes, green spaces and a forward-thinking use of limited downtown space.
