Access and Livability: Reestablishing Urban Fabric, Spaghetti Junction

Access and Livability: Reestablishing Urban Fabric, Spaghetti Junction

During the process of creating The Plan of Nashville, the convergence of Ellington Parkway, I-24, Main Street, Spring Street, and Dickerson Pike in East Nashville, often referred to as “Spaghetti Junction “was identified as a prime location for redevelopment.

In the spring of 2012, students from the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design teamed with students from Vanderbilt University’s Owen School of Management to develop scenarios for a 16 block mixed use development. Those projects, as well as precedent studies and additional research can be found in this document, Re-establishing Urban Fabric: Spaghetti Junction.
