Chick-fil-A is approved, despite traffic concerns

Brentwood Planning and Zoning Wednesday approved, 6-3, a new Chick-fil-A at 8590 Eager Road, the current location of a Macaroni Grill, which will be removed.

Several commission members were concerned about cars (coming from Eager Road) turning right into the parking lot, with cars leaving from the same entrance. Crawford Bunte Brammeier (CBB), traffic engineers, had two options: 1) increase the radius of the corner, or 2) remove parking spaces on each side (5 total) so cars leaving those spots won’t be blocked by traffic, and also increase the radius.
