The city of Franklin has begun work to improve the area of Franklin Road from the Harpeth River bridge to Hooper Lane/Harpeth Industrial Court near downtown Franklin.

Barricades have been placed on the west side of the roadway as crews begin work to widen the roadway.

When complete, the roadway will be widened to three lanes and will feature bike lanes on both sides of the road, sidewalks on both sides of the road and decorative street lighting similar to Hillsboro Road.
