Construction crews closed down part of North Main Street in Franklin for a year forcing drivers to detour, while residents and businesses were left wondering what was being done and when it would finish.

Now construction will close parts of the road again until November, but the city is taking extra steps to make sure people are informed throughout the project.

Franklin finished the first $3.6 million phase of North Main Street in August by rebuilding the roadway from Jefferson Street to the Graham Street intersection, putting in new underground drains and adding new sidewalks and decorative lighting. You can expect to see similar improvements being made from Graham Street to U.S. 31 over the next eight months.
