Cities across the US are revisiting the functionality of interstate highways in downtown areas to better connect neighborhoods bisected from mid-century infrastructure. Areas with existing interstates below the grade of a city’s primary street grid have the potential to be capped with a more functional addition, reconnecting the two sides of the interstate. Most examples accomplish this by creating a new public space, in the form of a park, or by constructing a larger bridge to accommodate new liner buildings. Join NCDC and Vanderbilt University students to learn about the possibilities for capping the interstate in Nashville and the feasibility of the projects throughout the downtown loop.
