Gallatin, TN – The City of Gallatin and the Tennessee Department of Transportation will officially open the new Albert Gallatin Avenue extension in an upcoming ceremony. The project creates a corridor between US-31E and SR 109N to major arterial roadways without the need to travel through downtown.
Approximately 30,000 vehicles utilize US-31E in downtown Gallatin every day. The extension is anticipated to divert approximately 12 percent of the traffic away from the downtown.
Albert Gallatin Avenue is the largest locally-managed road construction project in the state.
State and local officials are hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30am on Wednesday, July 27.
