Concord Road Widening from Jones Parkway to Arrowhead Drive -
The City has entered into a contract with the TN Department of Transportation (TDOT) for development of a project to widen Concord Road between Jones Parkway and Arrowhead Drive. The road will be widened to 3 lanes with curb and gutter, a separated 10-foot wide bike/pedestrian path running along the south side of the improved road, and a 5-foot wide sidewalk on the north side of the road from Jones Parkway east to Steeplechase Drive. Funding for the project will include $3 million in federal highway funds and approximately $1.2 million in City funding. Right of way acquisition is underway. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2013 subject to final acquisition of all required right of way. Franklin Road South -
Widening of Franklin Road is proposed from Concord Road to Moore’s Lane. Survey work and engineering design are underway with the city funding engineering. Property appraisals required for right-of-way acquisition are planned to begin in early 2013 with right of way acquisition tentatively planned to be complete by mid-2014. Construction of improvements is subject to future funding commitments from the Tennessee Dept. of Transportation. Wilson Pike/Split Log Road Intersection Improvements
- This intersection improvement project includes the addition of a dedicated right turn lane onto to Split Log Road from northbound Wilson Pike and a dedicated left turn lane into the new Smith Park entrance road from northbound Wilson Pike. A traffic signal will also be installed at this intersection. Finally, the right turn lane into the southernmost entrance of Ravenwood High School will be extended to allow for more storage of vehicles entering the school. All of these improvements are designed to address continuing traffic delays during peak travel times. The turn lane improvements were completed in August 2012 and the traffic signal is expected to be operational in early 2013.
