A new grant provides funding for a Gallatin greenway segment that will include part of the campus at Volunteer State Community College. The twelve foot wide path will run across the front of campus near Nashville Pike and eventually be the middle portion of a greenway from downtown Gallatin to Station Camp, where it will connect to the Sumner County greenway. The Tennessee Department of Transportation is providing $950,000 for the grant. The project is expected to take several years to complete.
