Tips To Help You With Deal With Clarksville Traffic Like a Pro

 

Just because you're new to the Clarksville area doesn't mean you have to drive around aimlessly or miss out on the best shortcuts! If you want to be able to navigate your new town like a pro, just follow these 4 tips:

 

1. Keep the calendar in mind

Because Clarksville is home to so many colleges -- with Austin Peay State University being the biggest -- you're naturally going to see more traffic during the school year than you will in the middle of the summer. This is especially true for College Street. As the name suggests, this street will take you right into the Austin Peay campus, but it's also a popular way for people to get to the Downtown area. So, count on sharing the road nine months out of the year with college-aged drivers, campus buses, and pedestrians who are walking to and from class.

2. Always expect to see SOME traffic

Since Clarksville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the entire country, you're always going to have to deal with some traffic -- no matter what the calendar says. This isn't a sleepy little town! In fact, according to local traffic data, the average rush hour commute in Clarksville is about 26 minutes. So, factor that in when you look for a place to live. You may want to start your apartment search as close to the office as possible!

 

3. Keep all of the different names in mind

As you travel around Clarksville, you'll notice that the street names tend to change a lot! For example, College Street becomes Wilma Rudolph Blvd once you drive over the Little West Fork Red River. And, as you drive north on Riverside Drive, you'll see that it becomes U.S. 41 Bypass once you get to the northwestern corner of Austin Peay's campus. Then, the road changes names once again and becomes Kraft Street.

Bottom line -- if you can store a few different names in your head for Clarksville's main thoroughfares, you won't get confused when you're driving to a new place or getting directions from a friend.

 

4. Tap into the power of public transportation

If you'd rather leave the driving up to someone else, it's easy to do here! That's because Clarksville has a variety of public transportation options -- including the Middle Tennessee RTA buses and the Clarksville Transit System.
