NASHVILLE (Jen French) -- According to a study conducted by Tom Tom, Nashville is the 33rd most congested city in the western hemisphere.
Nashville Area MPO keeps track of traffic patterns.
There are several multi-million dollar construction projects in the works. At this time, a plan for Centennial Boulevard on the west side hasn't been introduced.
"Well Nashville's congestion has multiple factors--one of which is the large amount of freight and traffic that move through our community--with interstate 65, 24 and 40," Michelle Lacewell said, Deputy Director and spokesperson for the Nashville Area MPO.
Neighbors can report troublesome streets online to the Nashville Area MPO to help with future planning and developing.
