The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) wants people to be aware that upcoming construction of the Parking and Transportation Center will require an increase in blasting to three times per day beginning Tuesday, May 9, at 9 a.m., noon and 3 p.m. For the past two weeks blasting has taken place two times per day.
Each single, large blast will take place at the Parking and Transportation Center construction site, located directly south of the current Short Term Garage, and will continue Monday – Saturday at 9 a.m., noon and 3 p.m. for the next two weeks.
According to MNAA, some noise and vibrations associated with the blast will likely be noticeable in and around the terminal building. This blasting is necessary for rock removal for the construction of the new six-level, 2,000-space Parking and Transportation Center.
Until the “all clear” is given, vehicle traffic at the Long Term A/Short Term Garage/Rental Car Facility toll plaza and traffic on Terminal Drive will be asked to stop. Pedestrian traffic near the construction site will also be asked to stop. The traffic stop should last approximately three minutes.
MNAA is apologizing for any inconvenience this may cause. These adjustments are necessary to make needed improvements associated with the long-term BNA Vision, the airport’s growth and expansion plan for the airport.
