It could be a slow year for the Tennessee Department of Transportation in Warren County. There are no new projects planned in 2014.
According to TDOT spokesperson Jennifer Flynn, the completion of an existing project, the four-lane to Woodbury, is expected to be the highlight of the year.
“Probably the biggest thing that will happen in Warren County this year relating to TDOT is the completion of the big U.S. 70S paving project in Cannon and Warren counties,” said Flynn referring to the long-awaited four-lane to Woodbury. “This is a very important project to the citizens of Cannon and Warren counties, and it should be very beneficial to those who must travel between McMinnville and Woodbury.”
The project is the replacement/ widening of the state route, locally known as Nashville Highway, from Warren County to Cannon County. Done in stages, the current stage includes the placement of base stone, underdrains, guardrail, signs and final pavement on the entire 12.8-mile section of new roadway.
The contractor for the $21 million project is Highways, Inc. out of Brentwood. Completion is expected in late September.
This stage is the last stage, says Flynn.
“Once the paving project is completed, you will have a new four-lane roadway that runs from SR-281 in Cannon County to Spring Valley Road in Warren County, where the roadway will join up with the already widened portion of U.S. 70S near McMinnville,” she said.
The only other TDOT project ongoing in Warren County is the repair of the bridge over Mountain Creek on Smithville Highway in Dibrell. Project completion is May 2014.
