Concord Road East Project – Concord Road improvements from Sunset Road (inside city limits) to Nolensville Road (outside city limits). The road is being widened to 3 lanes with a separated 10-foot bikeway lane. The City funded engineering design and right-of-way acquisition. Project management and construction will be done by the Tennessee Dept. of Transportation.
TDOT has awarded a construction contract to Mountain States Contractors. At this time, traffic has been moved to new lanes along most of the corridor while work on the new northern lane continues. Motorists can expect occasional, short-term lane closures to allow equipment operate within the construction zone. Construction is expected to be complete fall of 2016.

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. Construction is continuing with traffic now using two of the new lanes while work on the third lane continues.This project is scheduled to be complete on or about July 1, 2016.
Franklin Road South - Widening of Franklin Road is proposed from Concord Road to Moore’s Lane. Survey work and engineering design are complete. Property appraisals required for right-of-way acquisition are underway with right of way acquisition tentatively planned to be complete by mid-2015. Construction of improvements is subject to future funding commitments from the Tennessee Dept. of Transportation.
Carothers Parkway at Moore's Lane - This project provides for the addition of a new northbound right turn lane from Carothers Parkway onto Moore's Lane. With the addition of this new right turn lane, the existing right turn lane will become a thru lane allowing for two thru lanes to continue on to westbound Moore's Lane toward I-65. This project requires replacement of one traffic signal pole and should be complete on or about July 1, 2016.
Concord Road at I-65 - This project provides for the extension of the right turn lane for westbound Concord Road to enter I-65 northbound. This project should be complete on or before June 1, 2016.
