LONG AWAITED ALBERT GALLATIN EXTENSION OPENS
GALLATIN NEWS - After more than a decade in the making, city and county leaders, along with TDOT, officially opened the new long-awaited Gallatin Albert Avenue extension last week.

The finished project created a corridor between U.S. 31E and SR 109N and other major roads by extending Albert Gallatin Avenue west from Dobbins Pike to a new interchange at S.R. 109 between Old Highway 109 North and Red River Road.

NEW SIGNAL ON AIRPORT ROAD EXPECTED IN 2023


On Tuesday, city council members approved on second reading $45,000 for construction of a signal at that intersection. A study was conducted in 2021 to determine the need for a traffic light. That study came back, saying the signal was marginally warranted.
According to data provided by the Gallatin Police Department, there have been more than two dozen documented traffic crashes at that intersection since the realignment in 2018.
Within a month that project is expected to be under contract. Tuttle said earlier this week it will likely take at least seven to eight months to complete the project, which puts the estimate for installation next spring.

According to the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), the estimated $111.8 million project is planned to extend SR 386 at Long Hollow Pike with an overpass leading directly to SR 109; lessening the bottleneck that occurs every day during rush hour.

Hammonds said the project will remove the current traffic light where Long Hollow Pike meets with SR 386 and replace it with a grade-separated interchange. Belvedere Drive will be reconstructed to tie into the new grade-separated interchange on the eastern side of 386, she added.
