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 two to five lanes 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 April 2022.

Sunset Road Widening Project
The Sunset Road project, from Owl Creek to Concord Road, includes widening the road to three lanes and creating a 10-foot wide, multi-use trail along the west side of the road. That trail will connect to an existing trail along Concord Road. As of Winter 2019, contract crews were in the final stages of having all the utilities relocated and the roadway fills are being placed .
The storm drains are being installed with the anticipation of base stone being placed by early spring. A traffic pattern change will begin in mid spring 2020, which will move traffic from the old Sunset Road to the newly built Sunset Road north bound lane. It will utilize the new center turn lane for temporary south bound traffic while the bike trail and the new permanent south bound traffic lane is completed.
The $8.9 million project is expected to be complete by late summer 2020.
