A highway engineering firm says it will move its headquarters to Nashville. But it’s not moving far.

Infrastructure Corporation of America says in a release it will pull up stakes in February from Maryland Farms in Williamson County. The 80-person headquarters is relocating to the Brentwood Commons Office Park, just a few miles away in Davidson County.

Still, Nashville economic development officials say the announcement – quote – “speaks volumes about the strength and vibrancy of our city.”

An ICA spokesman says the company was not offered and did not ask for tax breaks to jump the county line. But LifePoint Hospitals is making the same short trek, and was granted lower property tax rates to do so.
