THE NASHVILU TENNtSSIAN. Wtdnttdsy. Now. 3. 1965 1 9 State Highway Department map Madison sits astride the path of newly opened and planned arterial highways. Briley Parkway Links City By STEVE KORPAN Completion of an arc of Briley Parkway, the opening of the Pennington Bend Bridge and the scheduled near future construction of arterial and access roads erving Madison are expected to pen new vistas. "We no longer consider ourselves land and river-locked," according to Morris Kornman, Immediate past president of the Madison Chamber of Commerce. Briley Parkway and the new bridge cut the barrier which existed between Madison and the rest of the county to the east, Kornman said. Of particular Importance to this area is the completion of Briley Parkway, an outer perimeter loop which Intersects the radial arteries serving the Mid-state central city of Nashville, and Interstates 1-65 and 1-40. The first section of the parkway, from Vultee Boulevard to north of 1-40, 1.8 milps costing $424,270, was opened to traffic four years ago, according to the office of Leon Cantrell of the state highway department. The 2.2 mile stretch from Thompson Lane to Vultee Boulevard, costing $1,624,987, was opened last week and the 2.6 mile stretch from McGavock Pike to Gallatin Road, including the Pennington Bend Bridge, totaling $2,178,179, is open today. The stretch from 1-40 to Lebanon Road is under contract with completion scheduled for 1966. The stretch between Lebanon Road and McGavock Pike is under design and expected to open to traffic sometime in January, 1968. Briley Parkway, west from Gallatin Road to Dickerson Road, will be considered for construction next and the rest of the parkway later, with the entire project open to traffic in 1972. Expected lo play principal roles in serving Madison are 1-65 and 1-40, Interstate highways built by the federal government, which pays 90 per cent of the cost, and the state paying 10 per cent. 1-40, Knoxville to Memphis highway, is completed from Lebanon to Nashville, linking with 1-65 at the Silliman Evans Memorial Bridge. 1-40 is com pleted west of the city of Nash ville starting at Charlotte Road to a point in Hickman County The remainder of the interstate to Memphis is either completed or under construction. 1-65, already completed or under construction south of Nashville, crosses the Silliman Evans Bridge and feeds north through Madison to Louisville. Work is completed on 1-65 from the Evans Bridge to Trinity Lane, with the section from Trinity Lane to Two-Mile Pike in Goodlettsville schedueld to be let contract in April, 1966, with completion slated for January, 1968. Construction is planned for aj three-mile stretch from 1-65 to Two-Mile Pike with completion slated for January, 1968. Construction of the remainder of the road in north central Tennessee is under consideration in the near future. With anticipated heavy traffic loads in the north sector of the county and between Nash ville and Madison, additional arterls are scheduled. Ellington Parkway, a feeder-state matching funds program, is slated to parallel and relieve Gallatin Road traffic from the east end of Victory Memorial Bridge to near Spring Hill Ceme-j tery. Construction on the Parkway is already under way from 1-65 at the east end of Victory Memorial Bridge to Foster Street. The section between Foster Street and Trinity Lane is proposed for completion by January, 1968.
