Engineering Department Main Phone Number:  (615) 791-3218

The Engineering Department plans for the future infrastructure needs of the City of Franklin and consists of four (4) divisions.  These divisions include Capital Projects, Development, Traffic Operations, and Stormwater.  Engineering works with other City Departments, elected officials, and the public to ensure that our infrastructure is designed & installed properly and that it meets all Local, State and Federal standards and guidelines.

City-funded projects are managed by the Capital Projects team, while private infrastructure projects are reviewed by the Development team. 

The Traffic Operations Division manages the transportation network within the City of Franklin and is responsible for signal timing.  One of the primary goals of the Traffic Operations Division is to perform timing optimizations for signal systems. 

The Stormwater Division helps keep the City in compliance with mandates set by the Federal (EPA) and State (TDEC) Governments to minimize stormwater runoff pollution.


The Engineering Website has been organized into the following categories:

Capital Projects:  Information about City-funded projects

Development:  Information for development projects within the City

Transportation: Information about traffic operations (i.e. signal timing, traffic calming, etc.) in the City

Stormwater: Education,  outreach, illicit discharge information, stormwater related planning
