A key segment of Elliston Place — one of Midtown’s most popular and pedestrian-heavy nodes — is getting replacement sidewalks.
Work is underway on the Elliston Place stretch spanning 21st Avenue North on the east to Louise Avenue on the west. The segment — home to live music venues and hangouts The End, The Gold Rush and Exit/In, among other non-mainstream establishments — is often called The Rock Block.
Gwen Hopkins-Glascock, Metro Public Works Department spokeswoman, said the project involves the repair of approximately 1,500 linear feet of existing sidewalk on both sides of Elliston Place. The price tag is $130,000.
“It was identified in the Strategic Sidewalk Plan and a good example of how Public Works is working to help Nashville be a more walkable city,” Hopkins-Glascock said. “It has a number of pedestrian generators in the area, including hospitals, Centennial Park, Vanderbilt University, restaurants and other businesses.”
