Work Concludes on (State Route 6) Franklin Road
Franklin Road is a major thoroughfare connecting Davidson and Williamson Counties in middle Tennessee. While much of the roadway has been widened to four or five lanes over the years, a section in Williamson County was still two lanes. As a road that sees increased traffic during rush-hour, especially when there is congestion on parallel I-65, a continuous four-lane road was necessary.
The project, which began preliminary work in 2017, experienced significant delays due to multiple utility conflicts. The expanded roadway opened to traffic in November 2022 but remaining striping and punch list items were only recently completed.
The widened roadway features two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction as well as a 12-foot center turn lane. The project began at Concord Road and continued south just past Moores Lane to finish at Davenport Drive, inside the Franklin city limit. SSR provided construction engineering inspection (CEI) services for the 2.5-mile project.
