Brentwood, TN, October 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Turnberry Homes is improving traffic safety and reducing congestion in Williamson County with a road widening project on Wilson Pike. While the project is not adjacent to any Turnberry communities, it will improve traffic flow in an area that has become problematic for Williamson County commuters.
As part of an agreement with Williamson County, Turnberry is investing $700,000 to widen 3,300 feet of Wilson Pike between McEwen Drive and Clovercroft Road. Lanes will be expanded from approximately 9.5 feet with no shoulder to 11 feet with a four foot shoulder on each side. Turnberry will also install guardrails at strategic locations and resurface the entire section of roadway. A new turn lane will minimize traffic build up at the intersection of Clovercroft Road and Wilson Pike.
Work on the project is underway and is slated for completion in late October. The changes are part of a larger road improvement plan underway by Williamson County, the City of Franklin and Tennessee Department of Transportation. The State has completed an interchange on I-65 for McEwen Lane, and the City plans to improve McEwen Lane from I-65 to Wilson Pike.
Eventually, homeowners in Turnberry’s Chardonnay neighborhood, slated to open this fall, will be among the beneficiaries of the project. The community of homes priced from the mid-$600,000s will be located on Clovercroft Road just east of Wilson Pike.
“We expect these roadway improvements to provide Williamson County residents a safer, better performing route to I-65,” said Rick Bell, president of Turnberry Homes. “Turnberry is committed to creating not just homes, but also neighborhoods. By contributing to the larger community in this way, we’re extending that commitment to everyone in Williamson County.”
