Bright & Early: Under Construction Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Last night, the Metro Council approved funding for upwards of $600 million in construction projects all around the city. Within the next few years, we’re looking at a shiny new “adventure play park” (we can’t wait to see what that is) on the riverfront, a connector road between north Nashville and West End, some more classrooms so our schools can ditch the trailers, a crime lab for the Metro PD, a new library branch in Goodlettsville, and some fixing-up of our storm water system. And that’s just the beginning.

A year ago on Nashvillest: We realized we were definitely not to blame in the Saga of the Killer Tomatoes, learned from Craigslist that we should probably be more careful choosing our friends, met a pretty cool old cowboy in downtown Nashville, and then Opryland almost blew up.
