Project Description

In July of 2005, the City started the design of the Franklin Road Project (Harpeth River Bridge to Harpeth Industrial Court) as part of Franklin’s Corridor & Connector Streets Economic Development Projects.  After the 2008 economic downturn, this project was shelved for nearly 8 years. In 2016, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen funded this project within the FY2017-2026 Capital Investment Program project list.  The design is now complete.  As of 2018, the City entered into the easement acquisition phase.

The proposed Franklin Road improvements include the following:

  • Roadway widening from a 2-lane roadway with shoulders to 3-lanes with curb and gutter
  • Wide outside roadway travel lanes that accommodate bicycles
  • New sidewalks along both sides of the roadway
  • Street trees
  • New decorative street lighting
  • Traffic signal upgrades at both Old Liberty Pike and Liberty Pike
  • Relocating all overhead utilities into underground duct banks
  • Upgrading older and undersized water and sanitary sewer utility lines
  • Installing a new stormwater sewer system with catch basins and yard inlets
  • Other miscellaneous streetscape enhancements.
