Major Road Projects
I-65 Widening-Williamson County from SR 840 to SR 248– With the widening and improvements to I-65 from SR-96 to SR-248 in Williamson County completed, TDOT is now working toward the letting of the contract for the section from SR-840 to SR-248. The project is expected to be let to contract sometime this summer or early fall. Like the first project, the I-65 Widening Project will consist of the widening of I-65 from two to four lanes in each direction. It will include the modification of the interchange at State Route 248 (Goose Creek) and widening of the State Route 248 approaches to the interchange from two lanes to four. The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) proposed the improvements to relieve congestion levels and improve safety.
Concord Road Widening – The widening of S.R. 253 (Concord Road) from Sunset Road to U.S. 31A/41A (S.R. 11, Nolensville Road) will result in two 12-foot lanes, plus a 12-foot continuous turn lane and a 10-foot multi-purpose bike and walking path. The $13.5 million project will also straighten out the curve near the Mill Creek Bridge. There will also be a concrete I-beam bridge and box beam bridge built over Mill Creek and Owl Creek. Due to the endangered Nashville crayfish species living in the two creeks, there are seasonal restrictions on in-stream construction. TDOT and its contractors will not work in flowing waters from October 1st through May 30th, to ensure that reproductive activities of the crayfish are not affected by construction. The Project Length is 2.274 miles and is estimated to be completed in the summer of 2016.
State Route 397 (Mack Hatcher Memorial Parkway) – State Route 397, the Mack Hatcher Memorial Parkway in Williamson County, is the primary transportation concern of the city of Franklin. Due to huge demands on current and future traffic, local and state officials have requested for TDOT to improve the existing route and study the feasibility of extending the Parkway to the western portion of Williamson County. This action would create a complete loop around the city, avert traffic away from downtown Franklin and provide motorists access to other major routes in the area.
The Division of Project Management at TDOT oversees the development of this massive undertaking in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the City of Franklin and other coordinating agencies and resources.
The project encompasses two separate development processes: the improvement of the existing route and the development of the proposed western extension.
Proposed Improvements to SR-11 Nolensville Road-Williamson and Davidson Counties– The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) proposes to improve SR-11 (US 31-A), Nolensville Road, from south of Burkitt Road in Williamson County to near SR-254 (Old Hickory Boulevard), in Metro Nashville-Davidson County. The proposed improvement includes the reconstruction and widening of an approximate 4.0 mile section of Nolensville Road and is intended to address congestion, improve safety, and accommodate growth in this rapidly developing area.
The existing roadway is primarily two lanes. The proposed improvements will widen the existing roadway to a five lane highway, including two 12 foot travel lanes in each direction, a 12 foot continuous turning lane, 10 foot paved shoulders/bike lanes, curb and gutter, and 5 foot sidewalks on each side.
