Franklin Road Widening Project
The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) is widening Franklin Road between Concord Road and south of Moores Lane. The planned improvements include: Widening the roadway from its current two/three lane configuration to a five lane configuration with two north and south bound through lanes and a center turn lane. The project will also include a multi-use path on the east side.
TDOT started work in September 2017 and is expected to be completed in late 2021.

Upcoming 2019 Projects
Traffic Signalization at Franklin Road and Fountainhead Subdivision
Sunset and Ragsdale Road Realignment - Phase Two
Wildwood Valley Bridge Repairs
The Wildwood Valley Drive Bridge is in the northwest corner of Brentwood, crosses over the Little Harpeth River and provides access to the Wildwood Estates and Brentwood Lights subdivisions. Due to poor condition of the bridge, including potholes and exposed rebar, and pilings that have begun to erode due to the river water, repairs are scheduled for 2019.
Since the bridge serves as the only way in and out for about 100 homes, only half of the bridge can be repaired at a time, while allowing traffic to still be able to access homes. During the estimated four months of construction, a temporary traffic control signal will be placed to allow both north and southbound traffic to share the open half of the bridge. Residents are encouraged to allow extra time for travel during construction to help create a safe environment for those using and working on the bridge throughout this project.
