Franklin Road construction is ongoing at Moores Lane Wendy Sturges/Community Impact Newspaper

Beginning Oct. 24, crews with the Tennessee Department of Transportation shifted south to the intersection of Franklin Road and Moore’s Lane as work continues to widen the road from two to five lanes with a continuous center turn lane. The roadwork will reduce traffic down to one left turn lane and one right turn/thru lane, and drivers should expect delays. The project is split into two phases, according to TDOT. Traffic shifts to the newly constructed pavement are expected in spring 2020, according to TDOT. The project was originally slated to be completed in 2020; however, TDOT officials said the timeline has been extended to allow for more time to relocate utilities along the roadway. The entirety of the project is slated to be complete by 2022.

Timeline: August 2017-December 2020 (Phase I), January, 2020-April 2022 (Phase II)

Cost: $27.4 million

Funding source: TDOT
