Major Road Projects
- Construction on Interstate 65 from Trinity Lane to Dickerson Pike in North Nashville began in October of 2012 and is expected to be completed in October 2015. This $50 million widening project will expand I-65 from six to ten lanes, adding such much needed capacity for the more than 142,000 vehicles that travel this section every day.
- This project will also address safety issues with merging at the I-24/I-65 split. When this project is complete, there will be two additional transitions lanes to both I-24 North and I-24 South.
- Project Details
- Grading, drainage, construction of a concrete I-beam bridge, a concrete box bridge, and paving on I-65 beginning at Trinity Lane and extending to north of Dickerson Road
- 14 noise walls and 11 retaining walls Noise walls on I-65 at Old Hickory Boulevard and at Alta Loma Road.
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. You can read more about the crayfish in the section on Nashville crayfish or watch our video. The Project Length is 2.274 miles and is estimated to be completed in the fall 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 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 4.4 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.
- The project will be separated into two smaller sections due to the significant cost estimate to appraise and acquire right-of-way within the entire 4.4 mile corridor. The new sections are:
- South of Burkitt Road to north of Mill Creek
- North of Mill Creek to near Old Hickory Blvd.
