Slated for the Franklin and Brentwood areas are improvements to bridges on Franklin Road as well as improvements to the Moore's Lane interchange at I-65.

Construction work on Franklin Road will move further south at the Tennessee Department of Transportation continues work to widen the road.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 24, crews will shift into the next phase of traffic control at the Moore's Lane intersection to start work on drainage and grading in the area, according to TDOT. The roadwork will reduce traffic down to one left turn lane and one right turn/thru-lane.

Drivers who travel around this area should expect delays, according to TDOT.

The ongoing project will widen Franklin Road from two to five lanes from Concord Road to just past Moore’s Lane and will establish a continuous center-turn lane. The road will also feature a 10-foot multiuse path and new signalization at Davenport and Holly Tree Gap roads.

The project was originally slated to be completed in 2021; however, TDOT officials said the timeline has been extended to allow for more time to relocate utilities along the roadway.

The project's new estimated completion date is April 2022 barring any further delays or complications, according to TDOT.
