Mayor Karl Dean helped break ground today on the Midtown Hills precinct for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department on 12th Avenue South near Wedgewood Avenue. The 23,000-square-foot building — which will be built to LEED Silver standards — will serve as home base for officers to work in the communities of Edgehill, Green Hills, Forest Hills, Oak Hill, Crieve Hall and Nippers Corner, as well as Vanderbilt, Belmont and Lipscomb universities. It is scheduled to open next summer.

Tennessee Department of Transportation officials have picked Jamison Construction to perform emergency repairs to a 200-foot section of the Interstate 40 bridge above Charlotte Avenue. That span has been shedding concrete at regular intervals in recent weeks and is slated for a complete overhaul in 2015.
Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer says his team will funnel almost $600,000 in federal funds it administers to help Dickson officials continue their downtown revitalization work. The latest money will go toward upgrades of parts of West College Street and Main Street and will include new pavement and crosswalks, parking areas, signage, street lighting and landscaping, among other things.
