Just Don't Tell the Folks in the Sadler Neighborhood the Part About "More Railroad Freight"

Honestly, what non-trucking-industry driver here wouldn't drool at the prospect of 18-wheeler-free I-65, I-40, and I-24 corridors proximate to Downtown Nashville? But let's get serious: with all of the current talk about huge new transcontinental transit corridors (like La Entrada al Pacifico or the Trans-Texas Corridor), is getting trucks off the interstate grid a realistic and achievable goal or is it just an excuse for building up hopes and buying time for harder decisions? And there is a certain south Nashville neighborhood that might find off-road/on-rail solutions the creation of more hyper-local problems.
