TRANSPORTATION PLANNING MADE THE TITANS' NEW STADIUM A SUCCESS

The opening of the Tennessee Titans' Adelphia Coliseum in Nashville, Tennessee, brought an extensive amount of automobile, pedestrian, shuttle-bus, and charter-bus movement within the vicinity of the stadium and within Nashville's central business district (CBD). In this feature, the final in a series of three on Nashville, the authors describe the detailed traffic- and parking-management plans implemented to ensure safe and efficient traffic and pedestrian mobility before and after stadium events. The major components of the plan include specific vehicular and pedestrian routing for both pregame and postgame, designated parking plan for reserved and nonreserved parking, an extensive CBD shuttle and park-and-ride shuttle-bus plan, signing and street-closure recommendations, and police fixed-post locations. The plan also included provisions for local neighborhood management such as access and parking control, enforcement and security, cleanup, and the implementation of a citizen's hotline. Other issues addressed in the plan included coordination with other downtown events, a scaled-back plan for smaller events, and a multifaceted public-information plan to effectively communicate the details of the plan to all stadium attendees and affected parties.
