Titans Game to screw up Thursday afternoon rush hour traffic

With a Tennessee Titans game scheduled for a 7:25 PM kickoff tomorrow at Nissan Stadium, authorities have decided to seal off some downtown streets and bridges at 4 PM.  The Woodland Street bridge will close at that time to everybody but pedestrians and shuttle buses (and, one presumes, bikes).  MTA buses that normally use that bridge are instead being redirected to the James Robertson Pkwy and Jefferson St bridges.

Additionally, the Korean Veterans bridge will close to car traffic heading into East Nashville as the game nears its end.  There are other MTA routes that will be on detour for (apparently) all day Thursday, but it’s not clear from the city’s press release what other streets will be closed.

It was a hot, muggy 4th of July, but that didn’t stop the crowds for showing up for the annual Hot Chicken Festival.  Held this morning and afternoon in East Park (which is, yes, in East Nashville), events ranged from a fire truck (and kilt) parade:

To a hot chicken contest:

A stage also featured a host of festival-quality music, as pictured above.

Unfortunately, Calli Cline wasn’t too thrilled about the heat, both on the chicken and in the atmosphere:
