Nolensville Rd Update – Jan 2017

Nolensville Rd widening  (Jan 2017 Update)
The TN Department of Transportation is in the appraisal and acquisition process for Phase I (North of Mill Creek to SR-254 Old Hickory Blvd). Pending the availability of construction funding, Phase I is anticipated to begin construction in the fourth quarter of 2018. Construction of Phase I is anticipated to take a minimum of two years. The Department will begin the appraisal and acquisition process for Phase II (South of Burkitt Road at the county line to North of Mill Creek) while construction of Phase I is ongoing. The Department is continuing with the development of Phase II ROW plans at this time. A public design meeting has been scheduled internally by the Department for March 2, 2017. This meeting will allow members of the community to learn about Phase II of the project and provide comments and concerns. Additional details concerning the meeting and public notices will be issued in the coming weeks.

Nolensville Rd “Improvement” Road Project

Nolensville Road Project has been “in the works” since at least 2006.

The existing roadway is primarily two lanes.  The proposed improvements will widen the existing roadway to a five lane highway, including two 12 foot travel lanes in each direction, a 12 foot continuous turning lane, 10 foot paved shoulders/bike lanes, curb and gutter, and 5 foot sidewalks on each side.

Public meetings discouraging the development of the Holt Rd Apts (in Jan 2013) until road improvements are made seemed to get this project back in the running, but public meetings planned for Spring 2014 were postponed with little indication that work was imminent.

Here is the text of an e-mail that was received Nov 18, 2014

“The Nolensville Road widening project is still in development.  It has been decided by TDOT Administration to divide the project into two sections due to the significant cost to purchase right-of-way and to relocate utility lines within the entire 4.4 mile project area.  The two sections are:

South of Burkitt Road to north of Mill Creek, Williamson-Davidson Counties (1.9 miles)

North of Mill Creek to near Old Hickory Blvd, Davidson County (2.4 miles)

Each section will be developed under a separate schedule; therefore two separate public meetings will be conducted for each project section.

More detailed information regarding this change is forthcoming.  We ask for your patience as we work through this complex process.

Please let me know if you have additional questions.
