Gallatin has released a list of some of the most unique construction projects going on across the city.
The list includes 10 total projects that are coming soon to Gallatin and include new businesses, infrastructure improvements and park additions.
“The city maintains information on new developments on its website and we include a map that shows where each project is located,” Gallatin Communications Director Jeff Hentschel said. “Once I started asking our city planners, engineers and our Economic Development Agency for more details on a few of the sites, interesting features about some of them began to surface.
“This list was an attempt to show off what the public might find interesting or useful in retail and street-related construction projects.”
The projects include:
*Albert Gallatin Avenue extension to S.R. 109: The $31 million road project will extend Albert Gallatin Avenue west from Dobbins Pike to a new interchange at S.R. 109 between Old Highway 109 North and Red River Road. A new bridge over East Camp Creek and a widened bridge over the CSX railroad will also be added along with a signalized intersection at Blythe Avenue. The project is estimated to divert approximately 12 percent of traffic from downtown Gallatin and is the largest locally managed road construction project of its kind in Tennessee. It is expected to be completed in 2021.
*Miracle Park: Gallatin’s first all-inclusive park for children and adults of all abilities is currently under construction at Triple Creek Park. The project includes a Miracle Field for playing baseball, an all-inclusive playground and a pedal park for toddlers to learn how to ride a bicycle and children in wheelchairs. The Miracle Park is expected to open this fall.
*Windsong: The 126-acre mixed-use development will be located at the corner of South Water Avenue and S.R. 109. It will feature 630 new homes, a Publix grocery store and other new retail establishments.
*Butler Properties: A new retail shopping center will bring more food options to the area. The center, which will be located at 1115 Nashville Pike across from Walmart, will feature a McAllister’s Deli and Moe’s Southwest Grill. Other tenants will include CareNow Urgent Care and Lady Jane’s Haircuts for Men.
*Learning Zone: The locally owned daycare has plans to build a new facility west of Belvedere Drive and north of Tulip Poplar Drive. Teachers at the daycare promote curiosity and imagination while the learning experience is based on science, technology, engineering, art and math.
*Mapco at Hunter Pointe: In addition to standard gas station operations, the Mapco will also feature an outdoor flex area with event space, bicycle repair and a dog washing station. It will be located at 1107 Long Hollow Pike near S.R. 386 in the Hunter Pointe residential and commercial development.
*Various sidewalk improvements: While many of the Gallatin’s original streets were built without sidewalks, new developments are required to install them. The city has been awarded $700,000 to bring a new sidewalk to Browns Lane from Starpoint Drive to Nashville Pike.
*Belvedere to Lakeshore Drive drainage improvements: The $375,000 project planned this year will include a 1,700-foot-long ditch and pipe network that is meant to help alleviate localized flooding issues around residential homes in the Belvedere Drive and Lakeshore Drive area. Gallatin’s Stormwater Utility has already completed more than 100 projects in the last 12 months.
*GreenLea Commons: The new development planned on GreenLea Boulevard near S.R. 386 will include two new restaurants, a dentist office, fitness center and daycare. One of the restaurants will be Grant’s Kitchen and Grille, which specializes in home-style cooking with items like chicken and dumplings and country-fried steak.
*Gallatin Subaru: The $10.3 million development is located on 5.82 acres near the southwest corner of Nashville Pike and Browns Lane directly across from Miracle Ford. In addition to its 26,750-square-foot dealership, the site will also feature a dog park.
