Nightly lane closures to begin on Franklin Road in Brentwood on Sept. 9

Starting on Monday, Sept. 9, crews with the Tennessee Department of Transportation will close one lane on Franklin Road from 6 p.m.-6 a.m., a practice which will continue for the next few weeks, according to the city of Brentwood.

Overnight work is needed to install a water line and will require one lane to be closed near the Holly Tree Gap Road intersection. The work is estimated to take at least 2-3 weeks.
