The widening of S.R. 253 (Concord Road) from Sunset Road to U.S. 31A/41A (S.R. 11, Nolensville Road) will result in two 12-foot lanes, plus a 12-foot continuous turn lane and a 10-foot multi-purpose bike and walking path. The $13.5 million project will also straighten out the curve near the Mill Creek Bridge. There will also be a concrete I-beam bridge and box beam bridge built over Mill Creek and Owl Creek
Due to the endangered Nashville crayfish species living in the two creeks, there are seasonal restrictions on in-stream construction. TDOT and its contractors will not work in flowing waters from October 1st through May 30th, to ensure that reproductive activities of the crayfish are not affected by construction. You can read more about the crayfish in the section on Nashville crayfish or watch our video.
The Project Length is 2.274 miles and is estimated to be completed in the summer of 2016.
