I-24, in general, gets as much traffic daily as almost anywhere in the state. But in particular, the corridor between Rutherford County and Murfreesboro and Nashville is perhaps the worst corridor for traffic in the state.
Daily counts surpass 100,000 cars each way each day.
Toks Omishakin, assistant commissioner for the Tennessee Department of Transportation and chief of environment and planning, told the Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee that “It’s the most congested corridor in the state of Tennessee, especially between Sam Ridley Parkway in Smyrna and Harding Place.”
Since 2000, traffic has doubled along the corridor, with growth in Rutherford County, according to TDOT.
