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 April 2022.

Wildwood Valley Bridge Repairs (underway now)
The Wildwood Valley Drive Bridge is located in the Northwest corner of Brentwood, crossing over the Little Harpeth River and providing access to Wildwood Estates and Brentwood Lights subdivisions. The concrete bridge deck has begun to spall leaving potholes and exposed rebar in places, furthermore over time the river has begun to erode the pilings along the northern abutment. The repair of the abutment will require excavation and reconstruction, while the bridge deck will require some partial and some full depth deck repair throughout the surface. The City of Brentwood has set a plan for repair and resurfacing and through the formal bidding process, Bell & Associates Construction, L.P. has been awarded a contract for this project.
Since the bridge is the only point of access and egress for approximately 100 private residences, half of the bridge will need to be repaired and resurfaced at a time. Unfortunately, that extends the project time line. During construction, a temporary traffic control signal will be established allowing both north and southbound traffic to share the open half of the bridge. Lane width will be reduced to 9’6” during this time. An informational meeting was held with affected residents on January 22, 2019, we enlisted your feedback and have adjusted the project window to help minimize conflict with the Brentwood Swim and Tennis Club calendar of events. We anticipate some minor work activity beginning in June of 2019, however the phased work affecting traffic will not commence before July 8, 2019. Likewise, the bridge work will be completed no later than October 28, 2019, with minor cleanup and restoration permitted through November 22, 2019.
The City continues to work with Bell & Associates to identify efficiencies that may be employed to shorten the project timeline. We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and strongly encourage you to check back frequently for posted project updates.
Residents and visitors requiring ingress or egress to the Wildwood Estates and Brentwood Lights subdivisions are encouraged to allow a few extra minutes in their travels to compensate for the temporary signal timing necessary to create a safe environment for those using and working on the bridge throughout this project.
