TDOT plans to separate the intersections of Broad St. (SR 1) and Memorial Blvd. /Old Fort Parkway (SR 96/SR 10) by creating a single point urban interchange. This separation calls for a new bridge on Memorial Blvd. that will create an overpass over Broad Street. There are also plans for enhanced lighting, landscaping and aesthetic treatment of the retaining walls. Other improvements to State Route 1 and 96 will include sidewalks and curb and gutter.
This is desperately needed to relieve extreme congestion at this intersection. The Nashville Metropolitan Planning Organization identifies this intersection as the most congested in Murfreesboro. The Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on Old Fort Pkwy/Memorial Blvd is 27,240. The Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on Broad Street is 31,420. This means that nearly 60,000 vehicles pass through this entire intersection every day. By 2034, the ADT is projected to be 72,740.
TDOT hopes to award this project to a contractor tentatively in the fall of 2013 and begin construction in early 2014. Construction is estimated to last three years.
